The Blood Orange Clownfish is a new hybrid from ORA. This intergeneric hybrid is the result of crossing a female Maroon Clown (Premnas biaculeatus) with a male Ocellaris Clown (Amphiprion ocellaris). The Blood Orange Clownfish inherits desirable qualities from both parent species: large finnage of the Maroon and thick barring outlined with black from the Ocellaris. The offspring exhibit hybrid vigor as well as a unique red color. Their temperament seems to be somewhere between the Ocellaris and the Goldstripe Maroon, so care should be taken when choosing tankmates. Based on our experience with unintentionally produced hybrids, these fish will grow to be beautiful show specimens with large flowing fins and crisp, bright color. The Blood Orange Clownfish is available in fully barred and misbar varieties. Photo by ORA
