      Scientific Name: Amphiprion akindynos
      Max. size: 9.0 cm SL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; non-migratory; marine; depth range 1 - 25 m
      Distribution: Western Pacific: eastern Australia (Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea, northern New South Wales), New Caledonia, and Loyalty Islands.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 10-11; Dorsal soft rays (total): 14-17; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 13-14. Body and head orange with two black-edged white bars; the first running from the top of the head across the face, just behind the eye; the second from the mid portion of the dorsal fin. Caudal peduncle and caudal fin white.
      Biology: Occurs in lagoon and outer reefs . Has been reared in captivity. Associated with the anemones: Entacmaea quadricolor, Heteractis aurora, Heteractis crispa, Heteractis magnifica, Stichodactyla haddoni, and Stichodactyla mertensii
      Aquarium Care: For anemone association, see Biology section above. This species is sometimes available, and is not the hardiest. If possible, it has been suggested to ask the dealer to hold them for a couple of weeks before they're brought home. Once settled in, they adapt well to captive life.
