ORA® Captive-Bred Orange Skunk Clownfish

Greek Name: Amphiprion sandaracinos



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.
