Thunder Maroon Clownfish was created by selective breeding  Lightning Maroon Clownfish. By pairing up fish with more extensive white markings and breeding them through several generations we were able to create a solid white Maroon Clownfish with red fins and faces. Since the Lightning Maroon Clownfish originated from a White Stripe Maroon, the solid white color of the Thunder Maroon will stay white as the fish grows and matures.

 

Feeding

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.

Natural Host Anemones

In the wild Maroon Clownfish are very selective and almost always found hosting in the Bubble Tip anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor).

Aquarium Host Anemones

Clownfish do not require host anemones to survive or thrive. However, in most cases they will readily accept them. For Maroon Clownfish we recommend the popular and hardy Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor).
