Blue Striped Clownfish Information

It is important to note that the Blue Stripe Clownfish doesn’t actually have a real blue stripe. The stripe is actually white and reflects natural light, giving it a blue-colored appearance. The result is very similar to the blue hue that green chromis typically possess. The fish is often sought-after because it isn’t as popular as other clownfish. Clownfish are frequently admired when they are seen in an Anemone. Clownfish and Anemones are not dependent on each other to live or thrive. Since Anemones require intense light and a stable and stable environment in a well-established reef aquarium, it’s usually better to choose an aquarium that is less maintenance in order to keep a clownfish.

 

Blue Striped Clownfish Diet

Clownfish are tolerant of any marine-based diet that you can offer them. Offer a variety of food items, including frozen mysis shrimp, fresh shrimp silversides, flake pellets, and various other commercially prepared food items. If you have a coral or anemone the clownfish could take food to its host and feed it.
