The offspring of Amphiprion pacificus are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Amphiprion pacificus, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Amphiprion pacificus, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

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.
