Pink Skunk Clownfish

Pink Skunk Clownfish

The pink skunk clownfish, or pink anemonefish (Amphiprion perideraion) is a skunk clownfish found in the west Pacific Ocean. Clownfish form a symbiotic relationship with sea anemones. As clownfish feed on small invertebrates, which might otherwise harm the sea anemone, they expel fecal matter that provides nutrients to the sea anemone. However, increasing ocean temperature and pollution are putting their homes at risk. As the climate changes, corals are “bleaching,” whereby corals and anemones lose the algae from their tissues and their ability to sustain such symbiotic relationships. You can learn more about how the world’s coral reefs are changing and adapting in vedphoto’s upcoming Reactive Reefs exhibition at
