Tag: Pink Anemonefish (Amphiprion perideraion)

The Pink Anemonefish (Amphiprion perideraion) is possibly one of the most common and popular species of reef-dwelling fish on the local area.

Growing to a maximum length of around 10cm, Pink Anemonefish are found practically everywhere that Sea Anemones are present, particularly the Magnificent Anemones, with which it shares a symbiotic relationship.

This species is easily recognised by its overall pink colouration, transparent fins and narrow, white, vertical bar down each side of the face and white stripe along the center of the back.

Although i can't find any mention of it in reference material, there appears to be a very thin yellow margin present on the caudal fin of some individuals i've photographed.

Pink Anemonefish live in small colonies where numerous Anemones are present, usually with one breeding pair and smaller juveniles sharing one or more Anemones.

Their diet consists mainly of algae and zooplankton.

Usually the eggs would be hidden beneath the protective tentacles of the Magnificent Anemones (Heteractis Magnifica), but on this occasion a strong current meant that the eggs were exposed.
