Looking for the true Clown?-> Amphiprion percula - Echter Clownfisch
And the right Anemone for your Clownfish.
We always recommend keeping these animals as a couple. 2 slightly different animals always come together as a couple. It is also advisable to keep the animals together with a host anemone, so they show their natural behavior best and are also best protected against diseases (skin problems, s.u.). Offspring are not fussy about the food and take from flake food to frozen food pretty much everything you offer.
Virtually all anemone fish are now bred. The fish spawn near their anemone if possible. They lay about 200 to 300 small, orange-colored eggs. To raise the young fish they are taken from the aquarium of the parent animals with a larval trap and raised with special live food.
The offspring of anemonefish are in contrast to their wild-caught conspecifics very robust and not very susceptible to disease. The most common disease that still occurs occasionally is the so-called clownfish disease or anemonefish disease. The causative agent of the disease is called Brooklynella hostilis. With timely intervention, the disease can be treated well.
For many, a pair of clown fish (or anemone fish, known from the movie "Finding Nemo") including the host anemone is an absolute "must" of a saltwater aquarium. If that's the case, then we recommend an aquarium of at least 200 liters. Host anemones are among the more demanding animals in terms of water quality and anemone fish are also quite sensitive to non-optimal water levels. So-called "Nemo aquariums" with less volume, some of which are commercially available, are not suitable for the keeping of host anemones plus anemonefish in our view.
