Cinnamon Clownfish (Amphiprion melanopus) Care
The Cinnamon Clownfish, Amphiprion melanopus, is also known as the Fire Clownfish, the Red and Black Anemonefish, and the Dusky Clownfish. These fish come from the Pacific Ocean region. The body is a dark orangish-red that gets darker as it nears the tail; it has one white or blue vertical band just behind the eyes.
Clownfish are omnivores and require a diet rich in both meaty and plant foods, such as mysis and brine shrimp, marine algae, and flake food. They love their food and may be aggressive when it comes to sharing with other tankmates.
The Cinnamon Clownfish can grow to be about 4″ and can be housed in aquariums as small as 30 gallons. These clownfish are hardy and vary from peaceful to semi-aggressive depending on the fish and the tank environment.
These fish are reef safe and will not bother coral or invertebrates.
