The Pink Skunk Clownfish, also known as the Pink Skunk Anemonefish or False Skunk-striped Anemonefish, has a peach-orange base color with one white stripe behind the head that runs from the nose and down the entire length of the back. Another contrasting white stripe is located just behind the eyes.
The Pink Skunk Clownfish is a bit more challenging to spawn and rear than other clownfish species in the home aquarium, but with some effort can be accomplished by the dedicated marine aquarist. The females will be the largest of the pair and the two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. Clownfish are egg layers and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface and defend the eggs from other tank mates. The eggs will normally hatch in 8-11 days depending on the water temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers followed by baby brine shrimp. The post-metamorphic juveniles will exhibit strong schooling or "balling" behaviors that can continue into adulthood.
The Pink Skunk Clownfish diet consists of almost any meaty food items and herbivore preparations.
