Very special thanks for the photo of this beautyful "Amphiprion melanopus Cinnamon" to Soren Hansen von Sea & Reef Aquaculture.

Melanopus means “black footed”, which refer to the jet black pectoral fin of this species. This feature makes it easy to distinguish from the similar looking tomato clownfish. Cinnamon Clownfish also have a black body and anal fins. The face, belly and dorsal fins are red. It has a single white head stripe, which is wide and starts immediately behind the eyes. The Cinnamon Clownfish that Sea & Reef Aquaculture sells has a head bar that will develop a beautiful blue hue as the fish matures.

Like the other clownfish species, Cinnamon Clownfish are native to the Pacific Ocean. They can be found east to Bali, West to French Polynesia, North to Micronesia and south to the Coral Sea and New Caledonia.

Temperament & Captive Care
Cinnamon Clownfish are one of the larger clownfish species and can become territorial. It is well suited in community tanks with larger fish species. It is very hardy and its beautiful look and bold behavior make it a wonderful candidate for you reef tank.

Cinnamon 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 meals. Our captive bred fish are conditioned to eat a variety of aquarium diets including pellets, flake food, frozen Mysis shrimp, and frozen brine shrimp.

Natural Host Anemones
In nature Cinnamon Clownfish are typically found in the Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor). However, it can also be found in the Sebae Anemone (Heteractis crispa) and the Magnificent Anemone (Heteractis magnifica)

Aquarium Host Anemones
Clownfish do not require host anemones to survive or thrive. However, in most cases they will readily accept them. For Cinnamon Clownfish we recommend the popular and hardy Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor).
