CAPTIVE CARE - A varied diet is important, vitamin enriched foods are a plus, will do well in smaller aquariums, purchase captive bred specimens if possible, not uncommon for wild caught specimens to suffer from clown fish disease (Brooklynella hostilis) present when copious amounts of slime sloughs off the body of the fish. Larger females can be aggressive to conspecifics or related species. Best kept in pairs with a host anemone, in the wild hosts Merten's Carpet Anemone (Stichodactyla Mertensii), Leathery Sea Anemone (Heteractis crispa).
