Lightning Maroon Clownfish Playdate

We’re respecting the privacy of the proud owner of these two incredible fish, but the kids are fair game!  Many people have inquired as to the plans for these fish, and as mentioned previously, they are to spend their years in an incredible show tank in NYC.  The tank is cared for by a well known aquarium designer (we’ll have a post about him later), and all stops are being taken to make sure these fish have a good and healthy life. The two clowns are of slightly different sizes, so to aid them in their sexual development, they are being kept apart and will be paired with other fish to improve the odds that they will each reach the proper size to form a mated pair. But kids will be kids and it looks like the two slipped out of their window for a quick rendezvous, you know, just to check each other out.  “Hey, nice vents!” After about 30 minutes the two are separated and placed back into their holding tanks where they are still acclimating to the new environment.  We hope to have more info on the pair soon.… More:

The ORA Gold Nugget Maroon Clown is Really Starting to Live Up to its Namesake

 Back in September, ORA shook up the clownfish world with the commercial release of their captive bred Goldflake Maroon Clowns. In that announcement, they also teased us with images of another striking fish, the “Gold Nugget” maroon clown, which we were told wouldn’t be available for quite a while. The Gold Nugget clownfish, at the time, looked like a maroon clown with the same bar patterns as a Platinum Picasso clownfish…meaning it had an awful lot of white coloration. But as the months have passed, that same little Gold Nugget is starting to show its real colors, revealing more and more of that beautiful gold coloration that will eventually take over its entire body, less the maroon parts of course. We’re still not sure when these stunning Gold Nugget maroon clownfish from ORA will be available to the public, but we’re definitely keeping our eye on them. We will also be keeping on eye on that gold coloration as the fish matures and we hope ORA will continue to update us on their blog and Facebook page. Read MoreMore: is the world's leading destination for sustainable coral reef farming and the aquarium hobby.
