ORA® Captive-Bred Fire Clownfish



Inject some bright colors to your aquarium with this unique and fascinating clownfish. The ORA® Captive-Bred Fire Clownfish is also referred to as the red saddle anemonefish. The fish is dark red/orange however juveniles might be white with stripes on their head, too. As they grow older they'll shed the white bars, and be able to develop a dark posterior saddle that runs along both sides of their body. This species of the Pomacentridae family is a great option for every saltwater aquarium. Captive-bred fish possess a distinct benefit over species that are harvested wild since they're typically resilient and more accustomed to conditions in the home aquarium. Thus, captive-bred fishes are the perfect choice for newbies as well as experienced aquarists. The Captive-Bred Fire Clownfish is easy to breed in your home aquarium. Females are the most massive of the pair. The two species typically stay close to one and in the tank. Clownfish are egg-laying fish that deposit eggs on flat surfaces and protect eggs from their tank mates. The eggs are usually born within 8 to 11 days, based on the temperature of the water. The fry should be reared in a separate tank eating Rotifers, followed by baby brine shrimp. This captive bred fish is a ferocious eater. Its diet should include almost any meaty food item as well as herbivore dishes. Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" to 1-1/4"

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.
