The Saddleback Clownfish makes a great addition to any aquarium or tank. It is commonly known as the Black Saddleback Clownfish, and its scientific name is Wild Amphiprion polymnus. The fish can grow up to four inches; therefore, it should be kept in a tank with at least 10 gallons of water. A smaller tank can be used as the breeding tank. The aquarium or tank can be adorned with many hiding places and caves among corals and live rocks for the Saddleback Clownfish to grow well. Considered reef safe, the Saddleback Clownfish does well in a reef tank. This kind of Saddleback Clownfish feed on algae as well. The Saddleback Clownfish has a beautiful appearance and a unique swimming pattern. The fish has an erratic-looking motion when it swims up and down. This species acquired its name from the white field on the back side, in shape of a saddle. The Saddleback Clownfish should be kept with friendly and tiny invertebrates and reef fish. Avoid keeping it along with small shrimps. This Saddleback Clownfish least requires an anemone if it is provided with ample hiding spaces. However, it is observed that it stays less stressed and does better with an anemone. Anemones such as Stichodactyla haddoni and Heteractis crispa are recommended for this particular species but others will do fine as well. Although the Saddleback Clownfish is quite friendly with other clownfish, it should be kept in a smaller group. In case you want to breed the Saddleback Clownfish, buy an established pair or a group of juveniles for the purpose. The Saddleback Clownfish is an omnivore and can easily feed on all kinds of foods, including top-quality marine flake food that comprises both meaty matter and vegetables. This Saddleback Clownfish is not the easiest one to keep compared to its tank-raised counterparts.
