Overview

The Platinum Clownfish is a very popular marine fish. Its beautiful orange body dressed with white bands outlined in black instantly distinguishes the Platinum Clownfish. The Clownfish can be differentiated from the Ocellaris Clownfish by wider center bars, darker orange coloration or more of black outlining. This member of the Pomacentridae family is an excellent addition to almost any saltwater aquarium system. What makes this specific variety even more appealing to aquarists is the fact that each is captive-bred to help protect the fragile reef environments of the world.

The Platinum Clownfish has other unique advantages over wild-harvested species. For one, Captive-Bred Clownfish are very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, it makes an excellent choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike.

The Platinum Clownfish is also easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the largest of the pair and the two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. The Captive-Bred Platinum Clownfish is an egg layer and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface and defend the eggs from other tankmates. The eggs will normally hatch in 6-11 days depending on the water temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers followed by baby brine shrimp.

This Clownfish is an aggressive eater. It will accept most meaty foods and frozen herbivore preparations.
