Reef-Safe: Yes
Min. Tank Size: 20 gallons
Captive Care: Intermediate
Temperament: Peaceful

Remarks: Ubiquitous in the hobby, but more sensitive than many of the other clownfish. Wild-caught individuals often succumb to prasites (namely Brokklynella). Although it can be housed without an anemone, it tends to be less nervous if a host is present. Its preferred host (i.e. H. magnifica) can be difficult to keep.
