ORA® Captive-Bred Premium Goldflake Maroon Clownfish Info The Premium Goldflake Maroon Clownfish is an interesting variant from the Gold Stripe Maroon Clownfish. The typical individuals have stripe extensions or spots which cover up a large portion of their body. As with the majority of Gold Stripe Maroon Clownfish, they begin with white colored stripes. They become gold as they mature with the first signs showing between 12 and 18 months old. The designer clownfish don't require an Anemone to live however, they will take different Anemones as hosts and even corals. Their preferred Anemones to stay with include those of the carpet Anemones Stichodactyla Gigantea as well as the magnificent Anemone Heteractis Magnifica. Clownfish possess a distinct swimming pattern that differs from other fish. This could be passed on by their genetic makeup resulting from years of wiggling in the tentacles that belong to Anemones. When the Clownfish moves within its tentacles that sting, the Anemone's mucus will likely be splattered across the body of the Clownfish that helps to shield it from further stabbing. In the wild, they live in small groups, with one dominant female of a large size and a smaller, actively sexually active male as well as a couple of males and the young. When the female is gone, the largest male will change sex and become the dominant female, with the remaining Clowns climbing the ladder in front of it.

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.
