  • Description
  • The Maroon Clownfish is a large and fairly aggressive clownfish. Maroon Clownfish have a mostly deep red body with three strong vertical white stripes.

    Maroon Clownfish grow to a fully mature size of 6 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 29 gallons in size. Maroon Clownfish are aggressive fish and can hold their own with even larger more aggressive fish. Maroon Clownfish will be super aggressive to other clownfish in the tank, and can only be kept in multiples if they are a mated pair.

    Maroon Clownfish will also host in some anemones, which will provide them protection for larger fish. Maroon Clownfish are immune to the sting of an anemone, which will sting other fish trying to get to the hosting Maroon Clownfish.

    Care must be taken when handling a Maroon Clownfish, since nets will often injure them. It is best to move them with an acrylic container. Maroon Clownfish are carnivores and need a diet rich in meaty foods. Foods such as mysis and brine shrimp, small pieces of fresh seafood, high quality frozen food and high quality pellet and flake foods will keep your Maroon Clownfish healthy and happy. Maroon Clownfish are also very aggressive eaters and are not picky.
