Species Name: Amphiprion perideraion

Authority: Bleeker, 1855

Common Name: Pink Skunk/Pink Anemonefish

Range: Western Pacific Ocean: Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, northern Australia

Size: Up to 4 inches (10 cm)

Natural Environment: Inhabits lagoon and shallow outer reef areas, e.g., reef faces and fore reef slopes.

General Husbandry: Has a temperature range of 74 - 82°F (23 - 27ºC), and accepts a wide variety of foodstuffs, e.g. mysis shrimp, fortified brine shrimp, various meaty diced fish and shrimp flesh, and Spirulina flake, with algae an extremely important aspect in its diet. Should be fed a few times per day. Host anemones in the aquarium appear to be: Heteractis crispa, H. magnifica, Macrodactyla doreensis, and Stichodactyla gigantea. Should be among the first fishes to be added to the tank. Aggressive among themselves, yet, easily intimidated by rambunctious tankmates.

Aquarium Suitability: Will probably fair better in aquariums with a lush growth of algae.

Note: Captive bred species - yet ‘not’ widely available
