Platinum Clownfish

Platinum Clownfish

The Platinum Clownfish is a fascinating variation of the Common Clownfish, and instead of the common colours, it is white from head to tail. Additionally, as the Platinum Clownfish develop into their matured form they will inherit black fins, which really adds to their unique appearance.  

Requirements
This fish is found within the Indo-Pacific, Oceania, and Australia reefs. In its natural environment, this fish can grow to around 4 inches, however in the home aquarium they will unlikely exceed 3 inches. This Clownfish requires a tank of at least 50 litres with some live rock for hiding in.

Suggestions
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. 

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

  1. Got this little guy earlier this week and Have to say can’t keep my eyes off him. Acclimated the first day with the tank mates in my 75 gallon. He loves to race across the tank with my other percula. They love hanging out!!!. Would recommend live aquaria to anyone that wants the best of the best……
