The Orange Anemonefish (A. sandaracinos) is an uncommon find compared to the other Philippine anemonefishes, at least in the northern islands. Most of the time the Orange Anemonefish I found were associated with the anemone Stichodactyla mertensii, characterized by short tentacles and a large surface area.
