I was fortunate to purchase a pair of Cinnamons. The store associate said that she has never seen a nicer coloring of the two. They exhibit some rare colorings for Cinnamons. Their anal fins are all black and their dorsal fin is orange. I am pleased with my pair and hope that with right conditions in the tank,they will mate. I had to buy two anemones, long tentacled, because I only had one and the female was very aggressive about protecting it. Now with the second one, the male has his own that he tends to and the female will join him in caring for it. I also have a pair of Ocellaris, however, they were tank bred.

    Wow... you scored! I would love to be around a pair of breeding clownfish. I sure hope they mate for you.

I have one that hosts a Hatian pink tipped anenome (which is very rare that any clown would host that type) and she is just so fun to watch. She even feeds her anenome host. She is a little territorial toward other fish expecially if they go near her host, not too bad though. I would recommend adding one to your tank!

I've seen quite a few of these fish in the wild. I come from Australia but I live south of the great barrier reef. They are funny to watch when snorkeling. I hope to get one in my marine tank i'm getting soon.

These little buggers rival Maroon clowns in nastiness even at a young age! I had to get rid of mine since they bit HARD to "protect" it's anemone when I had to feed my snake eel! It was only 2" at the time!!!! If you like the coloring, the saddle backs (tank bred) are a better and nicer choice!

Probably one of the hardiest anemone fish I ever had. Will tolerate high nutrient water; but that does not mean it is happy living in filth. Somewhat aggressive fish. If you are planning to add new fishes to your tank, be prepared for it to get chased. Otherwise, try to put this fish last on your list. SOME Cinnamon clown loves to dig, so people with DSB, be prepared!

Great fish for a beginner and does not require anemone to survive.

I have a breeding pair in my reef and has been laying eggs all year long, but just don't have the time or patience to try to raise them unfortunately.

    What you can try to do is sell them or donate them. Try to know the Aquarium or person before you donate them. Frys (Clown fish babies) are REALLY hard to keep. But, you should at least keep one or two. Because if the adults die you have two more that grow up fast!

They are very easy to keep and not much work is needed to keep them alive
