Overview

The Black & Yellow Saddleback Clownfish, sometimes referred to as the Saddleback Clownfish, is mostly black with a yellow face and striking yellow outlined pectoral fins. The center stripe of this variation covers most of the width of the body, unlike others within this species.

A 30 gallon or larger aquarium is desirable. It may be kept in small groups and will benefit from a host anemone. They may form relationships with the following species of anemones; Carpet (Stichodactyla sp.), Sebae (Heteractis crispa), or Ritteri (Heteractis magnifica). (Always be sure that your aquarium and lighting system will support the needs of the host anemone before incorporating one into the aquarium.) It becomes more aggressive towards conspecifics as it ages.

The Black & Yellow Saddleback Clownfish diet consists of meaty food items and herbivore preparations. Offer mysis and vitamin enriched brine shrimp, quality flake food and dried seaweed fed with a veggie clip.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 3/4" to 1-1/4"; Medium: 1-1/4" to 2-1/2"
