These are fantastic fish especially the black clowns but they are really rare.

Beautiful, hardy fish but VERY aggressive.
My girl holds her own against the blue devils and other damsels; in fact, THEY leave her alone which is a change from them generally picking on other fish.
Great for a beginner clown if you don't want one of the "nemo" types and would like something a little more bold both in color and attitude.

Just remember to NEVER use a net should you need to capture or move this fish; their cheekspines will get snagged on the mesh and that can cause pretty bad injuries to the fish.

    If any other fish goes near their anemone they will chase it away as the anemone is their territory if you will. My maroon clown named coral won't let anything near her anemone.

A very hardy fish and awesome to watch and lose yourself. playful when they have a bubble anemone to play in. Mine killed one of my "nemo" clowns that i got when i was a novice. still strong and still the best looking fish that i have.

    If clowns are not introduced at the same time they will fight if there's more clowns than anemones they will fight over it unless they're a mating pair.

I have a a pair clarkii hosting a condy anemone. The funny thing is that in total I only spent $15 on both and they both live inside a 11in condy anemone. All it took was like 1hr. clarkiis will host abt any anemone that they can fight into.

I have had my clown fish for about a week and he just started laying behind the anemone, but now he is laying on the ground of the tank like the tester damsel fish that died, idk whats wrong, but all of our other fish are perfectly fine, and we feed them several times a day. But when we tried to put him in the anemone he went crazy swimming backwards and upside down....HELP!

    Hello there, i've been keeping marines for some years now & understand your anxieties to help, but it seems to me that he/she isn't bonding with the anemone therefore, take it out and if possible remove the clown to a hospital tank and just monitor the health eg, feeding activities any signs of parasites or stress & then if improved after a week or so then introduce again but under no circumstances try to force the symbiotic bond as this will stress both creatures. If this all fails contact your lfs also explaining your situation. Hope this helps let us know how things are:)

    Hard to match clowns with anemone and it needs to be the right type...

Blimey, they don't attack? Mine do! They are particularly picky about where rocks and artifacts are placed within their tank. But they are worth it! They are stunning fish and fascinating to watch as they bob up and down.

Iv had this fish for 1 year and is a great fish to have! It is very active and is very nice to its tank mates. My clown fish sometimes swims with my coral beauty angel fish. It is a little greedy when it comes to feeding.

Will snowflake clowns jump out of my 100 gallon tank?

    The only reason that I have heard of snowflake clowns jumping out of a tank was when the water heater malfunctioned and shot the temp. up to about 120f. Other than that they love the top/upper mid of the tank but shouldn't jump out.

Very beautiful and full of personality, but they can (and will) start acting like spoiled brats sooner or later! My clown Moe took to frogspawn instead of an anemone and won't let anything near it. if I move a rock by it no matter what the size, he'll move it away from the frogspawn and to his liking. He's lucky he's cute!
