Saddleback Clownfish - Amphiprion polymnus
This is the newest species of clownfish to be bred at the ORA Hatchery. The clownfish of this species grow only a partial center stripe which is saddle shaped, hence the name saddleback. There is a black color variant of this species that has a full center band, making it similar in appearance to the A. sebae species.
Traditionally a difficult species to maintain, wild caught specimens may need months of acclimation until they settle down to aquarium life. Their bobbing up and down swimming motion is quite distinctive. Once established they will accept a wide variety of foods in the aquarium. The saddleback clownfish prefer the Purple Long Tentacle (H.crispa) and Carpet (S. haddoni) anemones.
