The Phantom Clownfish, scientifically known as Amphiprion ephippium, is a mesmerizing and popular saltwater fish species that brings both beauty and charm to any marine aquarium. With its striking pattern and vibrant colors, the Phantom Clownfish is a captivating addition that will enhance the visual appeal of your reef tank.


The Phantom Clownfish features a distinctive pattern of bold black stripes set against a bright orange body. This contrast creates an eye-catching display and makes them stand out in any marine environment. They typically reach a size of around 3 to 4 inches, making them suitable for small to medium-sized reef aquariums.


Known for their peaceful nature and entertaining behaviors, Phantom Clownfish are best kept in pairs or small groups. They are well-suited for reef tanks and are compatible with a wide range of tank mates, including other clownfish species and peaceful community fish. They will establish a symbiotic relationship with certain anemones, seeking shelter and protection within their tentacles.


Feeding the Phantom Clownfish is relatively easy as they are omnivorous. They have a hearty appetite and will readily accept a variety of high-quality flake or pellet foods designed for marine fish. Additionally, providing them with occasional frozen or live foods such as brine shrimp or mysis shrimp will provide them with added nutrition and help maintain their overall health.
