Amphiprion perideraion

The Pink Skunk Clownfish is one of the members of the Skunk Complex. The Pink Skunk has narrow bars on the sides of its head resembling side burns. They are a pinkish yellow or apricot colored fish that reaches a maximum size of 3 – 4 inches. They are a peaceful clownfish that can be easily kept in community or reef tanks.

The Pink Skunk Clownfish ranges from Fiji and the Indo-Pacific to the Coral Sea.

Breeding Pink Skunks is particularly challenging since mated pairs can take up to 5 years before spawning for the first time. The nests can have anywhere from 800-1500 eggs. Post-metamorphic juveniles will exhibit strong schooling or “balling” behaviors that will continue into adulthood.
