Amphiprion clarkii and A. nigripes were found in coral reefs of three different atolls in the Maldives. A. clarkii was associated with five species of host anemones, but A. nigripes was only found in Heteractis magnifica. In few cases, both anemonefishes have utilized the same individual of H. magnifica. There was no significant correlation between the size of the anemones and the number of the inside living Amphiprion.
