Known also as a Great Barrier Reef Clownfish, this fish is native to the Western Pacific, specifically the lagoons and reefs of Eastern Australia, near Queensland, and some of the offshore islands. It is a golden brown, darker on the top half, with 2 vertical white bars outlined in black. One runs down behind the head, while the other starts at mid-dorsal and runs the length of the body. The caudal fin is white as is the mouth, while the nose area is a light pink. This beautiful fish is a rarity.
Size: 1" to 2"; can get up to 4"
Tank: min. 30 gallon
Food: (Omnivore) Needs a varied diet that includes plant materials, meaty items and frozen preparations
Adaptation: This fish does really great in an aquarium. Prior to introducing into the tank, it helps to let it settle a couple of weeks after it has been caught. Can take 3+ hours to acclimate.
Compatibility: An ideal reef fish that naturally lives among Bubble and Long Tentacle Anemones (does not need anemones to survive in the aquarium). It can be kept with moderately aggressive tank-mates, as it is one of the more bolder clownfish.
