The Eastern Skunk Anemonefish (Amphiprion sandaracinos) is a tropical fish species that can be found living in sea anemones on tropical reefs. Its distribution includes the waters of south-east Asia, the Philippines, Solomon Islands and West Australia. It can be found occurring in its host anemones that are the species Heteractis crispa and Stichodactyla mertensii. Adults are generally found in pairs living in an anemone often with many other juveniles living in the same host. It is generally found from depths of 4 to 20 metres. It looks very similar to the Western Skunk Anemonefish (Amphiprion akallopisos) however it can be distinguished by being more orange in colour and the white mid dorsal stripe reaches the upper lip. The Eastern Skunk Anemonefish (Amphiprion sandaracinos) grows to a maximum length of approximately 12cm.
