Overview

Add some blazing flashes of color to your home aquarium with this fascinating and unusual clownfish. The ORA® Captive-Bred Fire Clownfish is also known as the Red Saddle Anemonefish. This fish is a dark red/orange coloration, though juveniles can have some white lines on their heads as well. As these fish mature, they will lose the white bars and will develop the dark posterior or saddle on both sides of its body. This member of the Pomacentridae family is an excellent addition to almost any saltwater aquarium system.

Captive-bred fish have a unique advantage over wild-harvested species, as they are generally very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in the home aquarium. Therefore, captive-bred fishes make a great choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike.

The Captive-Bred Fire Clownfish is easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the largest of the pair and the two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. Clownfish are egg layers and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface and defend the eggs from other tank mates. The eggs will normally hatch in 8-11 days depending on the water temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers followed by baby brine shrimp.

This Clownfish is an aggressive eater. It its diet should consist of almost any meaty food items and herbivore preparations.

Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" to 1-1/4"
