The Fire Clownfish is often referred to as the saddle clown. With black patches on the body side, it makes a beautiful addition to an aquarium. The Fire Clownfish is very hardy and can be kept by new to moderate aquarist. The Fire Clownfish is safe with corals and invertebrates and makes a good inhabitant for a reef tank. Generally, it is best to keep singly in the tank because if you keep a pair then one should be of a smaller size than the other. One of them can develop as a female and grows larger in size while the second one will remain male. After being matured they will tend to be more aggressive towards new fishes. It is not advisable to keep the Fire Clownfish with fishes of shy or quiet nature because they are of defensive nature and the fishes that will not be able to defend themselves are not at all compatible. The Fire Clownfish should not be keep with other clown fishes too. The Fire Clownfish can grow up to 5 inches when optimal water parameters are provided. That being: having gravity range1.020-1.024 pH range 8.0-8.4, and temperature range of 75-82. The Fire Clownfish is very intolerant towards copper treatment; this treatment can be lethal to it. It usually hosts in Entacmaea quadicolor and Heteractis crispa, so you can keep it in your tank to make it comfortable. The Fire Clownfish depends on an omnivorous diet that can comprise of frozen, flake, fresh, and freeze dried foods. It is always recommended that the Fire Clownfish should be fed with a good variety of vegetative and meaty foods. Ideally it should be fed with small amounts of food several times a day with regular intervals.
