Clownfish are among the most popular saltwater fish, for obvious reasons. Averaging around three inches and known for their bright white stripes and colorful bodies, this group of fish instantly adds a pop of color to your tank. They are also extremely hardy, and should be purchased in small groups consisting of one species, introducing them to the aquarium simultaneously.
he Maroon Clownfish, also known as the Spine-Cheeked Anemonefish or Maroon Anemonefish, has a bold, red body color with a broad white stripe on the forehead, and white stripes on its midsection and in front of the anal fin.
Do not move the Maroon Clownfish with a net as its cheekspines will become entangled. Use a specimen container if capture is necessary. It is difficult to maintain more than one maroon clown in the aquarium unless they are a pair. These fish like to fight among themselves.
