About the Cover

Maxing out at around 4 inches (10 cm) and accepting a wide range of foods, the pink skunk clownfish (Amphiprion perideraion) captured in this month’s cover photo is a great choice for both large and small saltwater systems. Hardy captive-bred specimens are now widely available, and they will form a commensal relationship with most anemone species commonly offered in the aquarium trade—for those up to the task of keeping an anemone, of course. The pink skunk clowns (A. perideraion and its cousin A. akallopisos) are just two of the beautiful fishes profiled in this month’s “Superb Pinks and Purples,” a look at pink- and purple-colored fishes that can add some aesthetic appeal to a responsibly stocked marine setup.

Species Profiles

Tip of the Month:

The number of eggs a female fish produces is related to the amount of parental care given? A cod might shed several million eggs in a single spawning, leaving them to disperse in the open ocean, while a cichlid that broods her eggs in her mouth and cares for the fry after hatching may produce only a half dozen per clutch.
