Amphiprion clarkii

Clarkii’s have a very large range, one of the largest of the clown fish, that spans the West Pacific, Persian Gulf to Western Australia, from Austrialia up through the entire islands up to Thailand, in the western Pacific in all the islands of the Solomon chain and surrounding habitat to the west, south, east, and north to Taiwan, and southern Japan. They can grow up to up to 6 inches. Clarkii’s are territorial, aggressive within their territory, and have been known to draw blood from curious divers looking closely at eggs!
