All of the Maroon Clownfish sold at ORA are of the gold stripe variety. Normally, Maroon Clownfish vary in color from bright red to dark maroon with three narrow white stripes. The fish found in the area of Sumatra have gold colored stripes, and the ORA broodstock comes from this area.

The gold color of the stripes typically does not develop until the fish are about 9 12 months old. ORA fish are shipped at about 6-7 months, so they are showing the juvenile white stripes. They will develop the gold color in time, starting with the head stripe.

These very popular fish are easy to keep in aquariums, although they do not get along with each other. Unless a hobbyist can get a mated pair, it is best to keep them one to a tank. It has been observed that the gold stripe variety seems a little less aggressive than the White Striped variety. This is one of the LGst clownfish species, adult females can attain a size of over 6 inches.  This is a very long lived fish, ORA has had pairs that spawned for more than 35 years.

With the aggressive female guarding her nest, and her much SMer male mate fanning the eggs, Maroon Clownfish have some of the LGst spawns ever recorded for clownfish. Typical spawns may contain 1,500 eggs, and spawns of over 6,000 have been observed. This species also seems the most likely to show misbars, and has a higher percentage of incomplete striping than other species.
