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.
