  1. I have this clownfish in both of my tanks. They arn’t to aggressive unless they have eggs. Also if you want a clownfish that will bond with an Anenome this is the fish to get, but be carefull if you have two of them in the same tank they will fight over that one anenome even if they are a breeding pair. So if you keep two anenomes in the tank everything should be fine. and they will bond with almost every kind out there.

  2. Watch out! This clownfish can get very agressive! All day long it tortured my Angelfish and Damesel. Even killed my Bannerfish! Unless he is in a agressive tank I would not suggest him!

Clarkii Clownfish

The Clarkii Clownfish has a reddish-brown base colour with white stripes and an orange head when in its final adult form. However, when juvenile the fish is a yellowish orange with three white stripes on both sides of its body. 


The Clarkii Clownfish is classed as one of the hardiest fish available, which has made it one of the most common Clownfish in home aquariums. It is recommended that a 80 litre or larger aquarium containing an anemone and a fair amount of live rock is ideal. However, it should also be noted that this fish can become aggressive towards other Clownfish and even some other passive tank mates.

Aquarists have been known to state that the Clownfish are relatively simple to breed in the home aquarium. The largest Clownfish of the pair will be the female, and the couple will usually shadow eachother in the aquarium. They will usually hatch their eggs every 6-11 days depending on the aquariums temperature, and they will defend these eggs from other tank inhabitants. 

Clownfish are aggressive eaters and will thrive on most meaty and herbivore foods.
