ORA® Captive-Bred Goldflake Maroon Clownfish

Greek Name: Premnas biaculeatus



The Captive-Bred Goldflake Maroon from ORA® is an intriguing variation of the Gold Stripe Maroon Clownfish. The typical individuals show stripe extensions or spots. As with the majority of Gold Stripe Maroons the fish begins with white stripes that become gold as they age with the first signs showing between 12 to 18 months old. Since they are shipped between eight to ten months old the hobbyist will be able to experience the stunning transition of turning white to gold.

Captive-bred clownfish are extremely tough and long-lasting fish. They are an ideal choice for beginners or experienced aquarists. The Goldflake Maroon Clownfish is an excellent choice for a reef aquarium. It is believed that the Goldflake Maroon Clownfish are the most aggressive of all species of clownfish. Goldflake Maroon Clownfish can be sensitive to high levels of copper and should not have exposure to copper levels of copper that are near or over .15.

Captive-bred clownfish are simple to breed in an aquarium at home. Females will be the most massive of the two, and the two fish are likely to remain close to one another within the tank. The fish are egg producers and deposit their eggs on flat surfaces, and will protect the eggs from tankmates. The eggs usually hatch within 8 to 11 days, based on the temp. The fry should be kept in a separate tank with a diet consisting of baby brine shrimp and rotifers.

The Goldflake Maroon Clownfish diet consists of nearly any meaty food product and herbivore-based preparations.

Don’t move this Goldflake Maroon Clownfish with a net because the spines on its cheeks could get caught. Consider using a specimen container when it is necessary to capture.
