The Maroon Clownfish is one of the most strikingly beautiful of all the clownfish, especially the 'Orange Striped Maroon' pictured above
This fish can get fairly large and can be very territorial. An interesting "character" in the aquarium that can hold their own with almost everything including damsels. The maroon can be a very aggressive fish difficult to keep with other damsels. Having been bred in captivity, the Maroon Clownfish are often available as a pair as well as individually. Probably due to their beauty, they are a bit more expensive than many of the other clownfish species.
