Amphiprion clarkii

Clownfish are one of the most well-known marine species and are also one of the best for the beginner hobbyist. They are notoriously hardy and beautiful in coloration. Thanks to advances in aquaculture, the clownfish also comes in a variety of colorations and designs. They will very likely host anemone fairly quickly (just avoid condylactis), which is an interesting display of symbiotic behavior. The clown provides food and a cleaning service for the anemone, which in turn protects the clownfish. The clownfish is considered reef safe and will readily accept prepared diets. However, the Clarkii are known for being more aggressive and territorial than the Ocellaris Clown. Clownfish are known to change their sex to increase their chance of reproduction and genetic diversity in the wild. A school of clowns are built on a hierarchy with the female on top, so the largest clown in a school is always the female. If the female dies then the most dominant male (largest) will change their sex to take her place. Aquacultured Juvenile Maldives Black Pearl Clarkii Clownfish are one of the largest of the clownfish species. This species was successfully aquacultured in a state-of-the-art hatchery in Los Angeles, California. The Black Pearl Clarkii Clown will develop a black pearly coloration as they grow and has three thicker white bands. As they grow the bands will get thicker and become gold in color. The Clarkii Clown will grow to be about 6" in size.
