ORA® Captive-Bred Fiji Clownfish



The ORA® Captive-Bred Fiji Clownfish is a new species that was just described by Gerald R. Allen. For a long time the fish was believed to be a color variation of the Australian Clownfish-Amphiprion Melanopus that is distributed across in the Western Pacific Ocean. The different species of clownfish is different from Amphiprion melanopus due to the color and also by having fewer spinules on their operculum. This brand new species of the Pomacentridae family is a striking reddish orange body, tinged by bright, full-on orange tail, face, and dorsal and anal caudal, and pectoral fins. Apart from being stunning the tough ORA® captive-bred Fiji Barberi Clownfish can be quite active and makes a stunning and eye-catching focal point. Similar to other clownfish species the ORA® captive-bred Fiji Barberi Clownfish is likely to develop a symbiotic connection with larger anemones, such as Entacmaea quadricolor. It is believed that the Amphiprion barberi has a native habitat in the reefs of Fiji, Tonga, and Samoa. To get the most natural habitat, keep this fish within larger systems of marine life, with plenty of rocks, among which it is able to hide. It is also important to ensure that care is considered when selecting tankmates because the ORA® captive-bred Fiji Barberi is semi-aggressive, and can frighten those who are timid or docile by its loud activities. To ensure the best possible health for your Fiji Barberi, give the Clownfish a diverse diet of meaty items like mysis shrimp and frozen food preparations and flake food items. Some aquarists claim to have bred this species inside their home aquarium without or with an host anemone. Approximate Purchase Size: 1-1/4" to 1-1/2"

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.
