Description

The Clark's Anemonefish is a popular clownfish found in the Indo-Pacific region. It has more dark areas than most other clownfish. Like nearly all types of anemonefish, the largest member of each 'family' is female and she breeds with just one other male. If she dies, that male becomes female and grows in size to take her place as the group's leader.
