FOODS AND FEEDING - Fresh and frozen marine fare for carnivores, omnivores, herbivores, mysid and vitamin enriched brine shrimp, finely chopped table shrimp, feed at least two times a day.

AQUARIUM SUITABILITY - 6

REEF COMPATIBILITY - Excellent

CAPTIVE CARE - Not often seen for sale, best to acquire captive bred if possible, this fish ships poorly from its native waters, and if you buy wild make sure the specimen is heathy and feeding, can be kept in small groups if enough anemones are available, prefers the Magnificent Sea Anemone (Heteractis Magnifica) as its host. Groups need plenty of room, can be aggressive to conspecifics, usually not aggressive toward other anemonefish unless of similar species, may be picked on by other clown fish.
