I have one that hosts a Hatian pink tipped anenome (which is very rare that any clown would host that type) and she is just so fun to watch. She even feeds her anenome host. She is a little territorial toward other fish expecially if they go near her host, not too bad though. I would recommend adding one to your tank!

We had two clowns and then we got a Green BTA and the next day on of our clowns was hosting it. She lays in it and wiggles like crazy. she brings it food and keeps other fish away. Sometimes she lets the male go by it. It was exciting that our tank raised clowns hosted so fast. we have a Rose BTA in our other tank and hope that when we get clowns they host as easily as the ones in the other tank. We got the clowns from our local Petco store and they came fully equipped with ick. Thankfully our water quality is near perfect and we have awesome lighting. We did a water change and syphoned the bottom really well and we haven't seen any ick since. Very tough, hardy fish. Love them!

I've seen quite a few of these fish in the wild. I come from Australia but I live south of the great barrier reef. They are funny to watch when snorkeling. I hope to get one in my marine tank i'm getting soon.

These little buggers rival Maroon clowns in nastiness even at a young age! I had to get rid of mine since they bit HARD to "protect" it's anemone when I had to feed my snake eel! It was only 2" at the time!!!! If you like the coloring, the saddle backs (tank bred) are a better and nicer choice!

Hope this helps! 95 gallon Corner Bow front Reef tank.

Now the question is..... how can I add a friend, determine the sex, and or figure out how to find the mate for him? Any suggestions and I don't have anemone because I'm afraid it will sting my Coral. Any Comments greatly appreciated!

    If you want to determine the sex add another clownfish to the tank, the same species as the one you already have. All clowns are born male but when they find another clown or group of clowns the biggest becomes the female and she will mate then when she dies the next biggest clown becomes female etc etc.

    The captive anemone will only sting or attack if it is stressed, scared, feels threatened, or if you haven't fed it for a long time.

    Anamone fish can live up to 18 years.

    In a well fed and with pristine conditions this should be an issue.

    This is advice is generally good for any clown fish. If you put two of them in the same tank and they are any where close to the same side, then one will kill the other. If you put a really small one in with a really big one, then eventually when the small one sexually matures it will become the male, and the big one will become the female. There's a little wiggling dance that they will do when the change is taking place. When you add an anemone to the tank with a Maroon, or any clown fish, they get super hyper. This is probably when they are most aggressive against other fish who are not clowns.

I got 2 clowns in a 10-20 Litre tank. I got them from the dame tank where I bought them but they were in a group. One is large female the other is small male would they pair up. The small male follows the female and the female doesn't mind it when it comes. So are they a pair?

    Yes they are most likely a pair as in the clownfish family all clowns are born males then in a group of males the biggest becomes female.
  • Anonymous - 2012-04-10
    Yeah thats a pair. But be carefull, if your tank is a 20G or less don't put another pair in. They could become territorial. Look out for eggs!

Wow lots of room! Sounds like this will be a very COOL tank once you slowly add your inhabitants! I noticed when my clowns do not have an anemone to host (which they do not need to live) if I make a little cave or cozy overhang, they will use that instead. Otherwise, hovering at the top is not a big deal, and they will adjust. They, at times like to "host" the heater or power-heads. No worries, just as long as they are not gasping for air, you are fine. With a tank that big, you can actually have another pair of clowns (not maroons, they are mean) like a pair of pink skunks, ocellaris, or clarkiis. Introduce the other pair into the other end of the tank. I had a 150 with 3 pairs of clowns, each had their own anemone and everyone was cool with each other. I had a pair of tomatoes, perculas and skunks.

Probably one of the hardiest anemone fish I ever had. Will tolerate high nutrient water; but that does not mean it is happy living in filth. Somewhat aggressive fish. If you are planning to add new fishes to your tank, be prepared for it to get chased. Otherwise, try to put this fish last on your list. SOME Cinnamon clown loves to dig, so people with DSB, be prepared!

Great fish for a beginner and does not require anemone to survive.
