Need to be certain of the identification of these anemone fish. Thanks in advance.

 

 

Can you can supply some location or any other information for certainty's sake :)

 

Amphiprion species, I'm guessing something in the clarkii complex.

 

Most of them seem immature which makes it somewhat unclear for me. The one with two smaller fish obscuring

it seems to be an adult with darker body colouration.

 

I'm sure it will be clear to someone experienced with the fish from whichever sea this was seen in.

 

Cheers,

Jim.

Hey Jim these were filmed in the Philippines near Apo Island.

Agree with Jim. This is a hugely colour variable species: variable by habitat, locality, type of anemone they associate with etc. The Fishbase page for A. clarkii shows examples similar in colour to those in your photo. Have a look at: http://www.fishbase.us/photos/thumbnailssummary.php?ID=5448

Hope this helps

Thanks for the help guys. I'm thinking it is a Clarks as well just trying to verify as it's for educational purposes.
