The Common Clownfish has a beautiful orange body dressed with white bands outlined in black. These bold markings make it easy to distinguish the Common Clownfish from other species of clownfish. This member of the Pomacentridae family is an excellent addition to almost any saltwater aquarium system. 

The Captive-Bred Common Clownfish has other unique advantages over wild-harvested species. For one, the Captive-Bred Common Clownfish is very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, this clownfish species is a great choice for both novices and seasoned aquarists alike.

The Captive-Bred Common Clownfish is also easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the largest of the pair and the two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. 

This fish is sometimes sold as the Percula Clown, even though it is not. The colour pattern is very similar, but it is not as bright orange. The Common Clownfish is usually significantly lighter in colouration and is often missing one or more stripes. It may also have non-symmetrical stripes on the sides of its body, making the Common Clownfish unusual and appealing to most hobbyists. The colouration of these clownfish will darken to a nice solid orange with age.

Common Clownfish do well in an aquarium containing almost any anemone type. In nature, they are found to host Bubble Tip Anemones, Malu Anemones, Ritteri Anemones and Carpet Anemones.

The Common Clownfish can be an aggressive eater. They will accept most chopped meaty foods and frozen herbivore preparations.
