Overview :

The pink skunk clownfish is one of the more sensitive anemonefish. Wild-caught individual pink skunk clownfish often succumb to parasites. There are a couple similar species. The Pacific clownfish (Amphiprion pacificus) was only recently described. It is very similar, but it is pinkish-brown, lacks a head bar, and is currently only known from Samoa and the Fijian Islands (which overlaps the range of the Pink Skunk Clown fish ). The pink skunk clownfish can be kept in an aquarium as small as 10 gallons. While an anemone host is preferred, the pink skunk clownfish will also shelter among live rock and faux corals if a sea anemone is not present. It may even adopt large-polyped stony corals or feather dusters as surrogate hosts.
