For the first time in the Aquarium’s history, we have successfully bred pink skunk clownfish,Amphiprion perideraion. This amazing achievement was the product of two years of intense work by the dedicated aquarist staff. We hope to put the babies on display soon for the world to see.

Being a volunteer at the Aquarium of the Pacific is like owning about 12,500 of some of the world’s most glorious and exotic pets!
Even though working as an Exhibit Interpreter and Day Captain for the Education Department can be exhausting, it is a most enjoyable way to tire out; the hours fly by because the pace often is quite hectic.
