Picture of a Skunk Anemonefish
Skunk Anemonefish Amphiprion perideraion also known as the pink skunk clownfish or pink anemonefish.
Like all anemonefishes, the Skunk Anemonefish forms a symbiotic mutualism with sea anemones and is unaffected by the stinging tentacles of the host.
It is a sequential hermaphrodite with a strict size-based dominance hierarchy; the female is largest, the breeding male is second largest, and the male nonbreeders get progressively smaller as the hierarchy descends. They exhibit protandry, meaning the breeding male changes to female if the sole breeding female dies, with the largest nonbreeder becoming the breeding male.
