Sustainable Aquatics Adds Madagascar Clownfish to Captive-Bred Offerings
12 Nov, 2015
A NEW Species of Clownfish for Sustainable Aquatics – The Madagascar Clown, Amphiprion latifasciatus
In late 2012, we imported a group of juvenile A. latifasciatus clownfish from Madagascar. These fish were placed in various large display tanks on the SA campus. Three years later, two of the pairs have begun spawning. Pictured is a spawning pair in a 240g mixed reef. Their eggs can be seen at the upper left, near the anemone.
Larval Rearing of the Madagascar Clownfish
Rearing the newly-hatched larvae of the Madagascar Clown did not prove difficult. Many healthy juveniles were produced from several nests collected in early 2015.
Below are pictures of some of the juveniles!
Madagascar Clownfish are now available from Sustainable Aquatics as tank-bred fish! Visit www.SustianableAquatics.com for more information.
