Please Note: Due to variations within species, your item may not look identical to the image provided. Approximate size range may also vary between individual specimen.
Like all Captive-Bred Clownfish, ORA® Captive-Bred Gold X Lightning Maroon Clownfish are very hardy fish accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. This makes them perfect additions for novices and seasoned aquarists alike. Captive-Bred Clownfish are also good candidates for the reef aquarium, as well. In general, Maroon Clownfish are the most territorial of all the clownfish species demonstrating semi-aggressive behavior. Keep in mind that Maroon Clownfish are very sensitive to elevated copper levels, and should never be exposed to levels near or above 0.15ppm.
Captive-Bred Clownfish are easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the largest of the pair and the two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. Captive-Bred Clownfish are egg layers and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface and defend the eggs from other tankmates. The eggs will normally hatch in 6-11 days depending on the water temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers followed by baby brine shrimp.
The diet of the ORA® Captive-Bred Gold X Lightning Maroon Clownfish consists of meaty items such as frozen brine shrimp and mysis shrimp as well as herbivore preparations.
Do not move the ORA® Captive-Bred Gold X Lightning Maroon Clownfish with a net as its cheek spines will become entangled. Use a specimen container if capture is necessary
