Orange Skunk Clownfish - Bonded Pair
The Orange Skunk Clownfish, also known as the Skunk-striped Anemonefish, is pale orange with one white stripe behind the head that runs down the entire length of the back. The Orange Skunk Clownfish makes an ideal reef tank fish, as it does not grow as large as some clownfish and pairs well in the home aquarium.
A 30-gallon or larger aquarium with many hiding places is desirable. An anemone host such as Stichodactyla mertensii or Heteractis crispa is preferred, but not required. Clownfish are very hardy and durable fish making them a perfect addition for the novice or seasoned aquarist.
Clownfish are easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the largest of the pair, and two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. These fish are egg layers and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface, and defend the eggs from other tank mates. The eggs will normally hatch in 8-11 days depending on the temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers then baby brine shrimp.
The Orange Skunk Clownfish diet consists of almost any meaty food items and herbivore preparations.
