Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Zuchtformen 23 are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Zuchtformen 23, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Zuchtformen 23, try breeding yourself.

The Spotcinctus Clownfish is a color variation of the Red Sea Clownfish (A. Bicinctus). Like the name implies, Spotcinctus Clownfish have additional white markings in the form of white spots and irregular white markings. They are strikingly beautiful and, like snowflakes, each one is unique. Some Spotcinctus Clownfish have blue coloration on the top part of their eyes giving them a gorgeous blue pearly eye look. Please read the description for the Red Sea Clownfish for more information about the biology and distribution of the natural form of this species.

Temperament & Captive Care
Spotcinctus Clownfish are very active in a saltwater aquarium, which makes them attractive and a good choice for a larger display aquarium. They are generally peaceful, but grow to a large size and can become territorial when established as a mature pair. It is recommended to house Red Sea Clownfish in an aquarium with a minimum of 30 gallons of water.

Spotcinctus clownfish have a healthy appetite. Most clownfish are omnivorous feeders, meaning that they will consume a variety of different food types. In nature the diet of clownfish consists of crustaceans (such as copepods and amphipods), algae, polychaete worms and leftovers from the anemone’s meal. Our captive bred fish are conditioned to eat a variety of aquarium diets including pellets, flake food, frozen Mysis shrimp, and frozen brine shrimp.

Aquarium Host Anemones
Clownfish do not require host anemones to survive or thrive. However, in most cases they will readily accept them. Spotcinctus Clownfish will accept most host anemones including the Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor), the Beaded Anemone (Heteractis aurora), the Sebae Anemone (Heteractis crispa), the Magnificent Sea Anemone (Heteractis magnifica) and Haddon’s Carpet Anemone (Stichodactyla haddoni). A good choice is the Bubbletip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor), which is popular and hardy.
