Overview

This Gold Stripe Maroon Clownfish is a perfect addition to your reef aquarium. Normally, Maroon Clownfish vary in color from bright red to dark maroon, with three narrow white stripes. The broodstock was found in the area of Sumatra. The gold color of the stripes typically does not develop until the fish are about 9-12 months old. Fish are shipped at about 6-7 months, so they are showing the juvenile white stripes. They will develop the gold color in time, starting with the head stripe.

These very popular fish are easy to keep in aquariums, although they do not get along with each other. Unless a hobbyist can get a mated pair, it is best to keep them one to a tank. It has been observed that the gold stripe variety seems a little less aggressive than the White Striped variety. This is one of the largest clownfish species; adult females can attain a size of over 6 inches.This is a very long-lived fish; we have had pairs that spawned for more than 35 years.

The Gold Stripe Maroon Clownfish diet consists of almost any meaty food items and herbivore preparations.

Do not move the Maroon Clownfish with a net as its cheek spines will become entangled. Use a specimen container if capture is necessary.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1/2" to 1-1/2"; Medium: 1-1/2" to 3"
