Overview

The Captive-Bred Gold Dot Maroon Clownfish is a variation of the incredible Gold Stripe Maroon Clownfish. Every Captive-Bred Gold Dot Maroon Clownfish is a one-of-a-kind fish, as no two individuals look the same. As juveniles, these fish will display a brilliant dot somewhere between their three bands, almost like a drop of paint. As the fish mature, the dot will shift into hues of metallic gold.

Maroon Clownfish are well known for their intense coloration and oversized fins as well as their confident disposition. An adult sized Captive-Bred Gold Dot Maroon Clownfish with fully mature coloration is a remarkable centerpiece fish for any home aquarium. When pairing this species, it's typically best to have a dramatic difference in size between the individuals.

Captive-Bred Clownfish are very hardy and durable fish making them a perfect addition for the novice or seasoned aquarist. Captive-Bred Clownfish are also good candidates for reef aquariums. In general, Maroon Clownfish are the most territorial of all clownfish species. Maroon Clownfish are very sensitive to elevated levels of copper, and should never be exposed to levels near or above 0.15.

Captive-Bred Clownfish are easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the larger 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 8-11 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 Gold Dot Maroon Clownfish diet consists of meaty items such as frozen shrimp 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.
