Amphiprion tricinctus

Albert J. Thiel


Below is helpful information for those of you who keep the 3 Banded Clownfish:

The three-banded Clown, or Amphiprion tricinctus, is a real special clownfish in as much as it is not that common and is often confused with other ones. Do not confuse it with Amphiprion bicinctus (graphics of both will added in the next couple of days - my scanner conked out). It is considered among the hardy ones but still requires great care to keep it healthy and appears to really need a host anemone.

Often this fish is not available in stores but you can special order it. Paired and mated specimens are pricy but since they can be bred, those of you who are into breeding may want to take up the challenge.
