The Pink Skunk Clownfish or Anemonefish does not look like most other clownfish. Apart from being pink, it has a narrow, vertical, white line behind its eye and another along the top of its back like a skunk's markings. It is native to reefs the Malay archipelago and Australasia. Small for a clownfish, the larger females grow to 10cm long.

The more peach-orange variant looks a little more related to clowns. It is less fussy about which host anemones to use and less territorial about sharing them with other fish. Also, unlike most clownfish, algae makes up a large part of its diet (which may be why its less aggressive/territorial). The Nosestripe and Orange Clownfishes look a little similar to the orange variant but without the vertical white bar; the Maldives or Black-finned looks similar but without the white dorsal stripe.
