The White Striped Maroon Clownfish is also known as the Maroon Clownfish, Spine-Cheeked Anemonefish, and Maroon Anemonefish. It has a bold, red body with a broad white stripe on the forehead, and white stripes on its midsection and in front of the anal fin.
Maroon Clownfish are the largest of the clownfish and are known for spawning in the home aquarium. It is not recommended to house the Maroon Clownfish with any other clownfish as they will likely harass or even kill other clownfish. A 30 gallon or larger aquarium is desirable as is a host anemone such as the Bubble Tip Anemone.
A White Striped Maroon Clownfish will accept almost any type of marine based diet offered. They should be fed a varied diet including frozen mysis shrimp, raw shrimp, silversides, flake, pellet, and other commercially prepared foods. If the clownfish is hosting an anemone or coral, the fish may take food back to it’s host and feed it.
