Overview

The Captive-Bred Orange Skunk Clownfish, also known as the Skunk-striped Anemonefish, is pale orange with one white stripe behind the head that runs down the entire length of the back.

A 30-gallon or larger aquarium with many hiding places is desirable. An anemone host such as Stichodactyla mertensii or Heteractis crispa is preferred, but not required. Captive-Bred clownfish are very hardy and durable fish making them a perfect addition for the novice or seasoned aquarist. The Captive-Bred Orange Skunk Clownfish is a good candidate for a reef aquarium. If introduced to the aquarium at the same time, many varieties of tank bred clowns can be maintained together in the aquarium.

Captive-Bred clownfish are easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the largest of the pair, and two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. These fish are egg layers and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface, and defend the eggs from other tank mates. The eggs will normally hatch in 6-11 days depending on the temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers then baby brine shrimp.

The Captive-Bred Orange Skunk Clownfish diet should consist of a variety of meaty food items such as chopped shrimp and frozen herbivore preparations.
