ORA® Captive-Bred Orange Skunk Clownfish



This ORA® Captive-Bred Orange Skunk Clownfish also referred to as the Skunk-striped anemonefish is a pale orange colored fish with a single white stripe in the front that extends across its long back. This Orange Skunk Clownfish makes an ideal reef tank fish because it doesn't grow to the size of other clownfish. A 30 gallon or larger tank with a variety of hiding spots is ideal. An anemone host like Stichodactyla Mertensii and Heteractis crispa is recommended but isn't required. Captive-bred Clownfish are extremely tough fish, making them an ideal choice for a beginner or experienced aquarists. Captive-bred Clownfish can be easily bred in the aquarium of your home. Females will be the largest of the two, and the two fish are likely to remain close to one another within the tank. The fish are egg-layers and deposit their eggs on a flat surface and will protect the eggs from tank mates. The eggs usually hatch within 8 to 11 days, based upon the temperatures. The fry should be kept in separate tanks with a diet consisting of baby brine shrimp and rotifers. The diet for the captive-bred fish is comprised of nearly any meaty food and herbivore recipe. Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" to 1-1/4"

General information on orange Skunk Clownfish This Orange Skunk Clownfish is the timidest of the Clownfish. The charming fish are light orange with an elongated white stripe on their mid-dorsal. This Orange Skunk Clownfish is rarely found in aquariums. However, it's a wonderful option for your home aquarium due to its gentle nature. They prefer to be placed in groups as they are more comfortable with more gentle tankmates. The Orange Skunk Clown does not require an Anemone to survive, however, it will take long Tentacle or Carpet Anemones as its host along with corals.

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.
