Amblyglyphidodon leucogaster (Bleeker 1847), the White- or Yellowbelly Damselfish. Quite variable in appearance, as evidenced in its multiple common names, the Yellow/Whitebelly Damsel may well be two distinct species'¦ The Indo-West Pacific (Melanesia, Micronesia, Ryukyus to the GBR) form separate from the eastern Africa into Red Sea one. Both are beautiful and aquarium-desirable varieties, found on reef slopes, passages and lagoons. This species too is a generalized zooplanktivore, feeding on crustaceans (copepods, mysids, amphipods, other crustacean larvae), fish eggs, and some algae.

Amblyglyphidodon aureus (Cuvier 1830), the Golden Damselfish. This gorgeous yellow-gold damsel is found throughout the Indo-West Pacific, the Andaman Sea, eastern Indian Ocean to Fiji, throughout Micronesia. The Golden Damsel is mostly found in settings of vertical reef walls amongst corals and gorgonians. The species feeds almost exclusively on zooplankton.  

Amphiprion clarkii (Bennett 1830), Clarkii or Yellowtail Clownfish. Indo-West Pacific; Persian Gulf to Western Australia to Melanesia, Micronesia. To six inches in length. The most variable species of the subfamily. Blackish to brown body color, third white body bar on caudal peduncle, white or yellow tail.  Off Mabul, Malaysia.

Amphiprion ocellaris Cuvier 1830, the "False" Percula or Clown Anemonefish, or Ocellaris Clown. Indo-West Pacific; eastern Indian Ocean to Australia, to Philippines, to southern Japan. To a little over four inches maximum length. Bred in captivity including beautiful northwest Regular and Australian dark variety mid-juvenile and adult below. Orange overall (except for melanistic forms), with three broad continuous body bars with narrow black margins (vs. thick ones in A. percula). Off Mabul, Malaysia.
