Welcome to SEA SEA TV. Today’s video is about the aquarium or tank
requirement for a clownfish. Clownfish are among the easiest saltwater
fish to keep in an aquarium. They still require more complex care than
most freshwater aquarium fish. However, their hardiness makes them an ideal
“beginner” fish for someone starting out with saltwater aquariums. Clownfish require a tank with a capacity of
at least 30 gallons. The tank should have plenty of hiding places
for the fish to help them feel safe. Clownfish can thrive in both fish-only and
reef setups, though the former is much less of a challenge for beginning saltwater hobbyists. Their water must stay between 74 to 78 degrees
Fahrenheit and have a specific gravity of 1.020 to 1.024. Clownfish will eat most fish foods. They will even eat flake food, which is unusual
for a saltwater fish. However, you need to make certain they get
a varied diet. Include live and frozen fish foods, like brine
shrimp and krill. Most pet shops carry these types of food. They also need some vegetables in their diet
like spinach and nori. You can get nori at specialty grocery stores. A varied diet ensures that clownfish get all
of the nutrients that they need. Clownfish adapt well to a “community” style
aquarium, an aquarium with small, peaceful fish. Most clown fish will not harm other fish,
but are small enough that they could be in danger from larger tank-mates. Clownfish will also leave invertebrates alone,
making them good candidates for a reef tank. Only one clownfish, the maroon clownfish (Premnas
biaculeatus) can be aggressive, and should only share a tank with large, hardy fish of
about the same size. Clownfish do not need anemones to survive
or even thrive. In fact, anemones can be more delicate and
difficult to care for than the clownfish themselves. Different species of anemone have their own
specific requirements for things like lighting, feeding and substrate. Some hardier anemones that host clownfish
include the beaded anemone (Heteractis aurora) and the adhesive anemone (Cryptodendrum adhaesivum). A few can sting humans, so always wear gloves
when handling anemones. Sometimes, in the absence of sea anemones,
clownfish make take certain corals, like Xenia polyps, as hosts. These are the aquarium requirements for a
clownfish and here is a summary of aquarium set up requirement for a clownfish. We hope that todays’ video has brought you
some ideas in setting up an aquarium for your clownfish.
