The movie Finding Nemo has made this type of fish very popular among households with children. Clownfish are beautiful, friendly, and interesting to watch. They are also hardy, resistant to most diseases, and tend not to be fussy eaters. If you are interested in breeding fish in your home aquarium, clownfish are an excellent choice. As soon as a male and female pair up, they will carry on spawning for the rest of their lives.
Clownfish species variety
There are several species of clownfish and they all look slightly different. The Ocellaris Clownfish is the most popular because it is the basis for the Nemo character. It is primarily orange with three vertical white stripes outlined by a fine black line. Like its name, the Maroon Clownfish is maroon in color and has gold or white stripes. This type of clownfish can get aggressive as it gets a bit older. The Pink Skunk Clownfish is orange with a thin white stripe. The Tomato Clownfish looks similar to the Pink Skunk Clownfish, but the white stripe that it has is thicker and the fish could be a bit larger.
