New Tangerine Storm Clownfish
For the very first time, the Tangerine genetics have been incorporated into the Storm line of Clownfish. The greatly reduced black pigment of the Tangerine Storm Clownfish makes them very distinct from the regular Orange Storm Clownfish. The reduced pigment give the fins a smoky appearance. Also, the reduced black pigment between the white and orange coloration gives them a clean and distinct look. To learn more about our new Tangerine Storm Clownfish go to our website here.
Temperament and Captive Care
The temperament and captive care requirements for Tangerine Storm Clownfish is very similar to that of the regular Ocellaris clownfish. It is relatively peaceful and hardy. They thrive in saltwater aquariums with or without an anemone present.
Most clownfish are omnivorous feeders, meaning that they will consume a variety of different food types. In nature the diet of clownfish consists of crustaceans (such as copepods and amphipods), algae, polychaete worms and leftovers from the anemone’s meal. Our captive bred fish are conditioned to eat a variety of aquarium diets including pellets, flake food, frozen Mysis shrimp, and frozen brine shrimp.
Aquarium Host Anemones
The Tangerine Storm Clownfish will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones and many hobbyists keep them with the popular and hardy Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor). As a reference the natural host anemones of the regular ocellaris clownfish are Magnificent Sea Anemone (Heteractis magnifica), Giant Carpet Sea Anemone (Stichodactyla gigantean) and Merten's Carpet Sea Anemone (Stichodactyla mertensii).
