Amphiprion ocellaris - Misbar Clownfisch (Pair)

Amphiprion clarkii - Yellowtail clownfish



Clownfish

The main Clownfish-question is...

 "Which anemone fish matches which partner anemone?"

 Not every anemone fish match every anemone. So it is important to choose the perfect host anemone. The most popular symbiotic anemone is probably the Bubble Tip Anemone Entacmaea quadricolor which is very often inhabited by clown fish. Moreover the species of class Heteractis (e.g. Heteractis aurora, Heteractis crispa, Heteractis magnifica, Heteractis malu) and the corkscrew -anemone Macrodactyla doreensis is suitable. You take out the matching anemone for your anemone fish-species from the position recommendations of the relevant fish.

My anemone fish do not host anemone – what can I do?

It is completely normal that anemone fish do not go directly in an anemone. In wild there anemone always host anemone fish. In aquarium we often ensure that the anemone fish also accept LPS such as Euphyllia, Xenien or soft corals as anemone replacement. However in our view the offering of a matching anemone always belongs to the species-appropriate keeping of anemone fish. An anemone fish should never be forced violently in an anemone since the fish must first slowly become used to the nettle toxins. 


Familiarization of anemone fish

Due to their reserved nature the anemone fish should be carefully accustomed to their new surroundings. We ship marine fish in special packages and the bags are thus filled with pure oxygen. Note that the animals as far as possible are unpacked stress-free. We recommend the adaptation of anemone fish with the aquarium water via the droplet method where all the fish and invertebrates can be customized. For this, take out the bag content with water and fish in a dark bucket and cover it with a belly protector. Now with a commercial air tube, add aquarium water dropwise, after about 30 minutes the same amount of aquarium water is flowed in the bag as originally available. Now pour the water carefully and let the animal slide slowly in the aquarium. If it is absolutely necessary, please use only net or hand. This can damage the mucous memebranes of the fish. Observe the fish the next day and feed them this properly. It proves to be an advantage if the existing tank animals are fed well before putting them inside since this will reduce the stress when putting the new tank inhabitants. Make sure that the amount of stress that arises inside the tank after putting the new inhabitants is as less as possible. It is also recommended that tanks should be covered in the first few days to prevent any panic jump outs of fish. 


Feeding of anemone fish and clownfish

Clownfish are not very choosy regarding feed. They can be fed all the known frozen food like Artemia, Mysis, granulated feed etc. If the anemone fish have settled properly in an anemone, it should be ensured that they get sufficient food at each feeding. 
 

Breeding of anemone fish – breeding and sex differences in Amp

Anemone fish belong to the marine fish which usually the easiest to breed. So today there are lots of commercially available offsprings of clownfish. If one would like to specifically breed anemone fish, then one can buy a working breeding pair. Anemone fish are basically born male. The larger, more dominant animal turns itself into a female later. One can also buy two separate anemone fish safely but it is recommended that one animal is somewhat bigger than the other. An aquarium of around 200l is sufficient for breeding with a host anemone suitable for the species. So a slip tank is required (ca. 100l volume).The fact that the anemone fish spawn, is noted very quickly by an attentive aquarist. The spawning place is cleaned very well by the fish and the eggs are laid. Now it is highly recommended if the spawning spot needs to be taken out - for example if they are on a flat stone. The fish hatch after 8-9 days (at 27°C water temperature) – on the day before hatching, the stone is taken out carefully with the clutch of eggs and without any air contact in the slip tank. If the fish are finally hatched, they must be fed plankton (Brachionus) immediately and regularly. So few phyto-and zoo plankton concepts are recommended here. Also a daily change of water from the water in breeding tanks should be considered. We wish you lots of success in breeding anemone fish!
