Pet Fire Clownfish For Sale

Fire Clownfish or anemonefish are fish that, in the wild, form symbiotic mutualisms with sea anemones and are unaffected by the stinging tentacles of the host anemone, remarkably, the sea anemone protects the clownfish from predators, as well as providing food through the scraps left from the anemone's meals and occasional dead anemone tentacles. In return, the clownfish defends the anemone from its predators, and parasites. 28 clownfish species are conventionally divided into six groups, or complexes. These include the Maroons, the Percula Complex, the Saddleback Complex, the Tomato Complex, the Skunk Complex, and the Clarkii Complex. There are five longstanding members of the Tomato Complex, namely the Red Saddleback (or Fire) Clownfish (Amphiprion ephippium). The Fire Clownfish is the only Clownfish which does not have striping as an adult. In the juvenile stage, this entertaining saltwater fish has a white head band that remains through the juvenile stage.

Scientific Name: Amphiprion ephippium 

Common Name: Fire Anemonefish, Red Saddle Anemonefish, Fire Clownfish, Red Saddleback Clownfish

Size: 2.0-3.0 inches and matures to 5.5 inches in length

Origin: The Fire Clownfish occurs in turbid waters throughout the Indian Ocean, but is particularly abundant in tropical waters from Thailand to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Malaysia, Java and Sumatra in Indonesia.

Habitat: Provide plenty of hiding places for this clownfish. While it is a bold saltwater fish, it appreciates a lot of live rock for concealment.

Diet: Clownfish, also known as Anemonefish, are omnivores that will eat a wide variety of prepared and frozen foods. They accept flake or pellet foods but also should recieve meaty foods such as mysis and enriched brine. Brine Shrimp are a favorite treat of these amusing little saltwater fish. Feed 2 to 3 times per day. Recommended foods are Microalgea (spirulina), Zooplankton (cyclops, pods..), small Crustaceans (krill, mysis, artemia..) 

Aggressiveness Rating: (1=shy, 5=bully.) 2. Fire Clownfish are generally peaceful but will fight with other species of ClownfishClownfish have gained a high level of popularity in the saltwater hobby because of their hardiness and abundance of personality. It is territorial in nature and will defend its turf against smaller, more docile fish and even larger fish. This fish shows no fear in defending what it perceives as its territory. This species lives in pairs (male and female), where the female is the biggest. One can typically only have one per aquarium, as it very territorial towards it's own kind. When setting up a reef aquarium, Clownfish are the obvious choice. They can be aggressive towards other kinds of fish, but mainly when these get too close to their hiding place. They do tend to get more aggressive when they have an anemone or when carrying eggs.

Difficulty Rating: (1=easy, 5=difficult) 1. The Fire Clownfish and their kin are best known by aquarists for their hardy, rugged, fearless, pugnacious, character. They are both revered and reviled for these traits. Most often, however, Fire Clownfish are simply taken for granted-utilized as cheap, burly "starter fish" that are inevitably discarded as they begin to outgrow and overpower the cohabitants of the "community" tank.

Captive Requirements: Fire Clownfish requires an aquarium of at least 30 gallons. 

Reef Tank Compatibility: Most other non aggresive fish should be fine. Do NOT mix with any other clownfish species. This fish is ideal for a reef tank. If there is not a host anemone available, it may wallow in the tentacles of the Toadstool coral or large-polyped stony corals. The Fire Clownfish is bold and hardy fish to say the least.

Reproduction: Fire Clownfish are one of the easiest to breed saltwater fish. Once a pair is formed, breeding should take place in a host anemone or a surrogate host such as a coral or even a small cave.

Additional Information: Fire Clownfish, Amphiprion ephippium, is one of the more unique and vibrant Clownfish available to the aquarium hobbyist. This particular Clownfish species is unique in that is has an intolerance to copper. If copper must be used, limit treatment to two days. A reef-safe (non-copper) treatment would be strongly preferred should a Fire Clown require medication. 

Water Requirements: 75°F-81°F - pH range of 8.1-8.4 - Salinity range of 1.02-1.026.

Lifespan: Many people make mistakes by keeping these saltwater fish in aquariums with the wrong kind of anemone. This shortens the lifespan of a Fire Clownfish from 6-10 years to 3-5 years. The Clownfish's greatest threat is humans.

Determining Sex: Fire Clownfish are born asexual and the most dominant fish in a group will become a female and the other fish will become males. The females are larger, more colorful and more dominant. If the female Fire Clownfish died or is removed from the aquarium, one of the males will take over the dominant role and become a female.
