The Clownfish, A.K.A NEMO!!!
The clownfish is a popular saltwater tank resident. If you've read my "Starting a Saltwater Fish Tank" article, then you might want one! That's great! You've come to the right place; scroll down to see more about Clownfish, or Nemo!
Clownfish are actually beginner fish in the world of saltwater fishtanks, because of their need of little space. In the wild, they usually live only in thier anemones and surrounding areas, so your tank doesn't really need to be as big, which will lower the huge price tag for a saltwater tank. However, clownfish require a minimal tank size of 20 gallons, and more if you plan on adding more fish. Their water should be about 74 to 78 degrees farenheight. Clownfish, unlike other saltwater fish, will eat almost all fish foods, even flakes, so buying them food shouldn't be a problem. Clownfish don't need anemones to survive, and can even be quite happy without them!

The clownfish is a rather peaceful fish, and is too small to harm any other fish, so they can be put togther with other peaceful fish in a reef community tank. The only exception is for the Maroon Clownfish, which must be kept with other big sizes and aggresive fish.
