  • Description
  • The Black Saddle Back Clownfish is a very rare and unique clownfish. Black Saddle Back Clownfish have a mostly black body with a golden face and two strong white vertical stripes, where one stripes resembles a saddle.

    Black Saddle Back Clownfish reach a maximum size of around 4 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 29 gallons. Black Saddle Back Clownfish are semi-aggressive fish and will be territorial and aggressive towards other clowns and damsels in smaller tanks. Black Saddle Back Clownfish don't bother other fish, inverts or coral, making them a great choice for reef tanks.

    Black Saddle Back Clownfish often seek refuge in hosting anemones since they cannot defend themselves well from larger predators. Black Saddle Back Clownfish have an immunity to the sting of the anemone, while larger predators will be stung and tend to leave clownfish alone while in an anemone.

    Black Saddle Back Clownfish are aggressive eaters and are not picky when it comes to their food either. Black Saddle Back Clownfish are omnivores and require a diet rich both in meaty and green foods. Foods like mysis and brine shrimp, high quality frozen foods and high quality flake and pellet foods will keep your Black Saddle Back Clownfish happy and healthy.
