Information @ a Glance


  • Clownfish and anemonefish are fishes from the subfamily Amphiprioninae in the family Pomacentridae.

  • Clownfish are overall yellow, orange, reddish or blackish, and many show white bars or patches.

  • The largest species reach a length of 18 cm (7 in), while the smallest barely reach 10 cm (4 in).

  • They are generally highly host specific, and especially the genera Heteractis and Stichodactyla, and the species Entacmaea quadricolor are frequent partners.

  • Clownfish belong to a group of small, brightly colored fish called damselfish. These inshore reef dwellers have developed a curious and potentially deadly relationship with the sea anemone.


  • There are a few very important steps to breeding clownfish. These include setting up the tank, choosing the broodstock, feeding, spawning, and raising the larvae.

  • An anenome is generally not required to breed clownfish, however, it certainly makes the task much easier in the long run. In fact clownfish have been known to spawn on clay pots, clam shells, and even the aquarium glass in the absence of an anenome.

  • There are three basic ways to obtaining a pair of clownfish. These include: 1) to buy a naturally mated pair captured from the wild, 2) to buy a small group of at least four fish, and 3) to buy two fish of greatly differing size.

  • When the eggs are first laid they are a bright orange. After a couple of days the color fades and eyes appear. The male guards the nest and fans the eggs to keep them oxygenated. Depending on the temperature, around day 8 the eyes will become silver. This means its time to hatch.


  • Clown Fish are enjoying great popularity due to the movie "Finding Nemo" As always, with aquarium Clown Fish, there is an accompanying demand for anemones. Unfortunately, all anemones are not suited for captivity.

  • Anemones and Clown Fish have a well-known relationship. In the ocean, the Clown Fish are protected from predator fish by the stinging tentacles of the anemone.

  • Clownfish stay small to avoid eviction. Groups of them live in sea anemones, and new tenants limit their growth so as not to incur the wrath of established incumbents.

  • Scientists could have written an R-rated, gender-bending plot twist to the animated hit movie “Finding Nemo”: Clownfish have a natural ability to change their sex.
