The Classic Aquarium Fish: Clownfish


It is colourful and nicely done by the nature’s paint brush. You can actually identify each and every stroke of Mother Nature and so it makes a perfect live and distinctively crafted showpiece for your living room aquarium. It is a Clownfish, more technically known as Anemone fish. These are the classic aquarium fish. Both hardy and attractive, they are perhaps best known for their symbiotic relationship with sea anemones, a relative of coral. Anemone fish are easy to keep, but their cnidarians counterparts are inordinately finicky and need high light levels, and luckily Anemone fish will thrive without them. Aquarists often find that Anemone fish will host in other things, from corals and Feather Duster Worms to power-heads and other equipment. Anemone fish care is identical to that of Damsel fish, as they are actually very closely related. These are quite easy to handle.

The varieties of Clown fish are:

Cinnamon anemone fish (Amphiprion melanopus)

These have dark orange body becoming black towards the caudal fin, with a bright white stripe running from the front of the dorsal fin to the pectoral fins and golden coloured fins. Care level for them is Easy to moderate. They can grow up to 12 cm (4.7 in).

Clarkii anemone fish (Amphiprion clarkii)

They are black or dark brown in colour with bright yellow finnage and two thick white stripes running perpendicular to the body. They look stunning in the aquarium. The care level for them even is easy to moderate and they grow up to 15 cm (5.9 in).

Ocellaris (Amphiprion ocellaris)

These are bright orange or yellow-coloured fish with white stripes. Fins are orange, rimmed with black. Ocellaris from northern Australia are black. Their bright colours make them a perfect reef tank mate adding that zing to your drawing rooms. And above all, they can be easily taken care off. They grow up to 11 cm (4.3 in).

Maroon clown fish (Premnas biaculeatus)

The name itself suggests what a colourful variety it is. However, they are aggressive in nature but reef safe and are easy to handle. These are maroon to bright red in colour, with three very thin white stripes. They however, grow up to a size of 17 cm (6.7 in).

True Percula (Amphiprion percula)

Even they can be easily handled in an aquarium. These are nearly identical to Ocellaris, but the white stripes are edged with black. They grow up to 11 cm (4.3 in).

Pink skunk anemone fish (Amphiprion perideraion)

These have pink to orange-coloured body with one white stripe over the operculum and another running from the tip of the snout, along the back to the dorsal fin. All fins are white, which perfectly outline the body of this colourful fish. Their level of care is however, moderate and they can grow up to 10 cm (3.9 in).

Tomato Clown fish (Amphiprion frenatus)

These are bright red-coloured fish with a single white stripe running from the front of the dorsal fin to the bottom of the head. They can easily taken care of and grow up to a size of 14 cm (5.5 in).

Saddleback anemone fish (Amphiprion polymnus)

These are similar to Ocellaris and Percula, but the second stripe does not extend throughout the body and instead resembles a saddle. Their care level is moderate. They can grow up to a size of 13 cm (5.1 in).

Sebae anemone fish (Amphiprion sebae)

These have black or dark brown body from above the pectoral fin, yellow below. They have two white stripes, the second resembling that of Polymnus. They have to be moderately handled and grow up to 16 cm (6.3 in).
