The Longfin Clownfish has mostly the same coloration as a normal ocellaris clownfish but with longer fins that look to be ripped up like a battle worn pirate ship. The fins are outlined in black, the orange is vibrant and bright, and the stripes are as striking as ever. Despite having longer fins, it is just as easy to care for as any other ocellaris clownfish. This fish accepts a wide range of different aquarium foods. It is hardy and tolerant of some fluctuations in parameters. It can be kept in pairs with other Longfin Clownfish or with any other ocellaris clownfish. The Longfin Clownfish is peaceful and gets along well with other tank mates, however some more aggressive fish may not be able to resist the urge to nip at its fins. It might be best to keep this fish only with other peaceful aquarium fish for this reason. The Longfin Clownfish can be hosted by an anemone like any other ocellaris. Because this fish is a designer fish from ORA, it does not come from the ocean nor does it have an ocean counterpart.

Because this fish is captive-bred, it is hardier and more resilient to disease than the already hardy wild-caught ocellaris clownfish. It is far less likely to carry disease from ORA than the ocean. Captive-bred fish are better adapted for aquarium life and better able to handle the stress of shipping. By purchasing captive-bred fish, you are helping the ocean by hindering the harmful wild-caught trade and supporting the captive-bred industry instead. This makes our wonderful hobby more sustainable.
