Cinnamon Clownfish (Amphiprion melanopus) pair, male and female up close.
The beautiful details of male and female are seen up close on these mature Cinnamon Clownfish. As with most clownfish, aggression is lessened when there is no anemone present. These two seem content to just hang out at the bottom of the tank. You can see the larger fish, or female, periodically nudge the male as if to "keep him in line"! The Cinnamon Clownfish have a similar temperament as Tomato Clownfish, possibly more aggressive, depending on tank mates.
Breeding/Reproduction: Cinnamon Clownfish have been bred in captivity. See general breeding techniques on the Breeding Marine Fish page.
