The Orange Skunk Clownfish is a hardy Clownfish that will not disappoint. This fish is one of several species in the Skunk Complex. Although they are similar to other Skunk Clownfish species, they are distinguished by their lack of stripes near the eyes and their orange tails. The reason they are called Skunk Clownfish is because of the white horizontal stripe running down the length of the top of their bodies. The bright orange coloration is sure to catch the attention of anyone who looks at your tank. They can be easily paired together, and they can be hosted by an anemone which looks especially beautiful. While these fish are hardy, you should be cautious when keeping them with aggressive tank mates. They generally like to be with other peaceful fish.

Wild-caught fish can be more difficult to care for than captive-bred fish. Along with that, the wild-caught trade harms the ocean. Thankfully, these Orange Skunk Clownfish are captive-bred by ORA. By purchasing captive-bred fish you are discouraging the harmful wild-caught trade while also supporting the captive-bred industry, making our beautiful hobby more sustainable! Not only is this good for the ocean, but it is also good for you. Captive-bred fish are hardier, more disease resilient, well adapted to aquarium life, and better able to handle the stress of shipping.
