Some News on the PNG Lightning Maroon Clownfish


Here’s a brief update on the PNG Lightning Maroon Clownfish from breeder Matt Perdersen. The eye-popping lightning maroon clown has been tentatively paired with a large female. I say tentative because clownfish are notoriously aggressive, especially the females. So, at any point, the lightning clown’s tankmate might take out her aggressions on him. The above video was taken shortly after the lightning clown was introduced to the tank. It can be seen cozying up next to the larger female, both hiding underneath the live rock. Hopefully these fish will tolerate each other long enough to develop into a breeding pair, or at the very least a bonded pair.
