The Captive-Bred Gold Nugget Maroon Clownfish is ORA®’s most distinctive clownfish species to present. Its distinctive appearance is caused by genetic mutations that manifest in a manner similar to the mutation that created the Platinum Percula. But, this Premnas designer changes when it matures, and the body’s color changes from white to sparkling gold. The Fins of the Gold Nugget are dark maroon in color and accented with fluorescent orange trim. The eyes of the designer clownfish are dark and striking in contrast to the body of gold. Some fish exhibit an iridescence of icy blue along the edges of their bodies. Caution must be taken when pairing, choosing tankmates, or choosing tank size.

 

Captive-bred clownfish are extremely tough and long-lasting fish. They are an ideal choice for novice or veteran aquarists. This Maroon Clownfish is a good choice for an aquarium with a reef. The Maroon Clownfish is the most aggressive of all species of clownfish. Maroon Clownfish are extremely sensitive to high levels of copper and should not have exposure to copper levels that are close to or over .15.

 

Captive-bred clownfish are simple to breed in the aquarium of your own home. Females are the largest of the pair and the two fish usually stay close within the aquarium. They are egg-laying fish and deposit their eggs on flat surfaces, and protect the eggs from the tankmates. The eggs usually hatch within 8 to 11 days, based upon the temperatures. The fry should be kept in a separate tank with a diet consisting of Rotifers and then baby brine shrimp.

 

Gold Nugget Maroon Clownfish diet is comprised of nearly any meaty foods and herbivore-based preparations.

 

Do not drag your Maroon Clownfish with a net since its cheek spines may get caught. Consider using a specimen tank to capture the fish if it is required.
