Overview

The Fiji Barberi Clownfish is a new species of that has been recently described by Gerald R. Allen. For many years this fish was thought to be a color variant of the Australian Clownfish-Amphiprion melanopus whose range is spread throughout the Western Pacific Ocean. This new species of clownfish differs from Amphiprion melanopus in both coloration and by having fewer spinules on their operculum. This newest member of the Pomacentridae family has an exciting reddish orange body tinged with a full, bright orange face, tail, and dorsal, anal, pectoral, and caudal fin. In addition to being beautiful, the hardy Fiji Barberi Clownfish is fairly active and creates a gorgeous, eye-catching focal point.

Like many other anemonefish, or clownfish, the Fiji Barberi Clownfish will form a symbiotic relationship with larger anemones like Entacmaea quadricolor. The Fiji Barberi Clownfish is native to the reefs of Fiji, Tonga, and Samoa. To best recreate its natural habitat, house this Clownfish in larger marine systems with plenty of rockwork amongst which it can hide. Care also needs to be taken when choosing tankmates since the Fiji Barberi Clownfish is semi-aggressive and will intimidate shy or passive fish with its boisterous activity.

For the best care, feed the Fiji Barberi Clownfish a varied diet that includes meaty food items, such as mysis shrimp and frozen preparations, as well as suitable flake foods. Some aquarists report having bred this species in the home aquarium with or without an anemone host.
