Info

Allen, Drew & Fenner, 2010
Amphiprion pacificus is a new species of anemonefish discovered by Gerald R. Allen, Joshua Drew and Douglas Fenner described in the latest issue of the Aqua, the International Journal of Ichthyology. The researchers discovered A. pacificus in the Wallis Island and Tonga in the western Pacific with other underwater photographs revealing its presence on coral reefs of Fiji and Samoa.

The team notes the new taxon is nearly identical in appearance to A. akallopisos from the Indian Ocean.

This species is generally commensal with the anemone Heteractis magnificus (Quoy & Gaimard, 1833) at depths between about 4 -10 m.

Similar species: Amphiprion sandaracinos and Amphiprion akallopisos
