The Pink Skunk Clownfish, Amphiprion perideraion, also goes by the name of the Skunk Clown, Skunk Anemonefish, Pink Clownfish, and the False Skunk-striped Anemonefish. As its name suggests, the Pink Skunk features a muted peach/orange body with a singular white stripe behind its head. It is a unique clownfish species in its coloration and striping patterns.
It is best kept singly in a tank of at least 30 gallons. If multiples are desired, a large aquarium should accommodate. The Pink Skunk will spend much of its time among live rock hiding in the crevices and like many clowns will often pair with an anemone. Good potential anemone pairs include Stichodactyla mertensii or Heteractis crispa.
This clown will eat an omnivorous diet consisting of chopped meaty foods or quality flake foods and is reef safe, hardy, and easy to care for making for a great fish for beginner and expert aquarists alike.
