ORA® Captive-Bred Clarkii Clownfish



This ORA® Captive-Bred Clarkii Clownfish may also be known as Clark's Anemonefish or Clark's Clownfish. It is a reddish-brown base color, with white stripes and an orange forehead once fully mature. The juvenile fish are yellowish-orange in color, with three white stripes on either side of its body. The Captive-Bred Clarkii Clanfish has additional advantages over species that are wild-harvested. One of them is that the Captive-Bred Clarkii is extremely hardy and familiar with the conditions of aquariums at home. This makes it an excellent choice for beginners as well as experienced aquarists. The Captive-Bred Clarkii clownfish can be kept alongside many other clownfish that are captive-bred, in the event that they are introduced to the aquarium simultaneously. Captive-bred clownfish can be easily bred in your home aquarium. Females will be the largest of the pair and the two fish are likely to be close within the aquarium. They are egg-laying fish and lay eggs on flat surfaces, and protect them from tank mates. The eggs usually hatch between 6 and 11 days, based upon the temperature. The fry need to be raised in a separate tank eating baby brine shrimp and rotifers. Captive-bred clownfish are omnivores needing both meaty and non-meaty food along with certain greens to supplement their diet. High-quality marine flakes, with a high concentration of spirulina algae along with frozen and freeze-dried food items, are widely accepted. Approximate Purchase Size: Medium: 1-1/4" to 1-3/4", Large: 1-3/4" to 2-1/2"

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
