Pomacentridae fish care and aquarium
Members of the Pomacentridae family include the Amphiprion Rubrocinctus and the Amphiprion Ocellaris. The Amphiprion Rubrocinctus is better known as the Clown Anemone Fish. The second fish is commonly referred to the Red-Gridled Anemone.
The Clown fish are biologically natured to dine off smaller fish. The Clowns come from the Australian, Japan, and Indo-Pacific waters. Clown fish tend to have rectangle bodies, which its colors are bright orange. The head area is often lighter orange. The fish have black edges, which are offset by white perpendicular bars. The head and eyes is where most of the white bars produce its color. Clown fish grow up to 3 inches in size. The Clown fish in fact was characterized in “Finding Nemo.” Nemo and his father are perfect examples of the Clown Anemone.
Clown fish tend to prefer water temperatures between 77 and 82 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition, the fish prefer a ph balance at eight and no higher than 8.5. The water density should be set at 1.0 23. The fish should be situated in a tank of fish that all enjoy strong lighting; as well, the fish prefers sandy areas. Do not forget to add a surplus of furnishings and substrate to the tank, since this is one of the high maintenance fish. Considering “Finding Nemo” again, since you will see the fish prefer luxury.
The Clown fish has next to zero sexual preferences. The fish’s behavior is remarkably distinguished from other fish. Clown fish seem to closely associate with chemicals and mechanisms of two distinctive organisms. The fish demand a capable dwelling, i.e. you should keep fish of his kind in the same tank and avoid putting sea anemones, including the giant anemones. These fish pose risks to the Clown fish.
Red-Gridled Anemone comes from the Pomacentridae family. This particular specie derived from the Japan, Australian, and Indo-Pacific Oceans. In tanks, the Red-Gridled desires water temperatures between 75 degrees and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Water density desired by the red-Gridled is around 1.0 20, or 1.0 23. The pH balance should rest at 8.3 and no higher than 8.6. This fish is similar to the Clown fish in that the Red-Girdled fish prefer luxury housing with plenty of furnishing, quality lighting, and so on. Stones are a plus. The Red-Gridled fish have a deep body, which its colors are similar to the Clown fish. The head is pale orange, while the body is brighter orange. The head and eyes differ slightly than that of the Clown fish, in that, the eyes are yellowish, while the head is has perpendicular white bars. To fish grows about 3 inches in size, and does not have sexual preferences.
The Pomacentridae breeds also include the Orange Fin Anemone and the Black Back Anemone. It is a matter of opinions; however, the Black Back fish is prettier than the Orange Fin. The Orange fin has light yellowish-orange flavors with vertical white bars near the upper area of the eyes and lower section of the body. Black tints highlight the white bars. The Black Back fish has a white vertical bar in the same proximity as the Orange Fin.
In addition, the Black Back has glowing orange contrasted colors, which black patches highlight the orange body; as well, the fins have a yellowish tone. The downside is the fish lose its color during maturity, at least the head bars whitest color is lost.
The Orange Fin fish swim the tropical Indo Pacific Ocean, while the Black Back fish roam the Andaman Seas. To learn more about Pomacentridae continue reading articles on the Internet
