Dark orange/red body; juveniles with narrow white bar behind eye; as they mature, the white line fades and a dark saddle appears mid-body. Captive-bred clownfish can survive without a host anemone but do require a small structure for a sense of security. With proper care these fish can live for 20 – 30 years.
