Captive-Bred clownfish are extremely hardy and tough fish, making them an ideal choice for beginner or experienced aquarists. This Captive-Bred Orange Skunk Clownfish is an ideal reef tank fish. If it is introduced to the aquarium simultaneously numerous kinds of tank bred clowns could be kept in the same tank.

They are egg-laying fish and deposit their eggs on flat surfaces, and protect eggs from tank mates. The eggs will normally hatch between 6 and 11 days, based upon the temperatures. The fry need to be raised in separate aquariums eating the rotifers, followed by baby brine shrimp.
