dc.description.abstractAmphiprion sp represent the largest complex of anemonefish with approximately 25 species ranging all over the Indo-West Pacific region. It often varies morphologically due to ontogenic, geographic, melanistic, hybridization, sexual and random differentiation and is very popular among aquarists. These observations were carried out to elucidate Amphiprion distribution in Peninsular Malaysia. Eight species were observed and their respective symbiont hosts were recorded. Recent surveys show that Amphiprion populations previously recorded in Tanjung Tuan (Cape Rochado), Melaka have now perished. Rapid uncontrolled development in the Straits of Melaka has caused the corals and many organisms dependent on reefs to perish. It is hoped that current studies would contribute towards the preservation of the anemonefishes which are often sought after for the aquarium trade.
