Akindynos Anemonefish (Amphiprion akindynos ) Care
The Akindynos Anemonefish, Amphiprion akindynos, is also known as the Barrier Reef Anemonefish and the Akindynos Clownfish. These fish come from the Western Pacific Ocean. They have an orange-brown head and body with two narrow white stripes edged in black. All of the fins are yellow except for the tail, which is white.
Clownfish are omnivores and require a diet rich in both meaty and plant foods, such as mysis and brine shrimp, marine algae, and flake food. They love their food and may be aggressive when it comes to sharing with other tankmates.
The Akindynos Anemonefish will grow to be about 4″ and can be housed in aquariums as small as 30 gallons. These clownfish are hardy and vary from peaceful to semi-aggressive depending on the fish and the tank environment.
These fish are reef safe and will not bother coral or invertebrates.
