Oman Clownfish: A Perfect Summary, Tank Instructions, Reproduction, Treatments, and Care

The Oman Anemonefish is one of the nation’s biggest and most endangered clownfish species. The ‘common names’ for this clown are ‘Oman Anemonefish’ or ‘Oman Clownfish’ that refer to its extremely restricted range. Its body is thick and round. These have two very thin vertical bars, one on head and the other semi, and its body colour ranges from orange to reddish brown. It is still known as the Oman Clownfish, and it’s also known as the Blue-Band Clownfish in Japan. The Brick Red Oman is a unique variability with bright brick red colouring on the body and tail section. An Oman Clown is quick and easy to start caring for and does not need any attention. All clownfish in the clarkii complex, even so, are aggressive and must not be kept with other clownfish species.

Background: Allen and Mee discovered Amphiprion omanensis in 1991.

Scientific Name: Amphiprion omanensis

Family: Pomacentridae

Habitat/Range: These have a modest and restricted distribution in the Arabian Sea region of the Western Indian Ocean. These are discovered off the coast of Oman, with the most common locale being Barr Al Hikman, and they have also been spotted just north of the Socotra (Sokotra) Island.

Appearance:

 The Oman Anemonefish is a deep Clarkii Complex clownfish with a peculiar appearance. The shape of these fish is usually robust and curved, with a barbed tail. However, its unusual tail fin has a forked, lyre-like appearance with threads flowing from the lobes’ ends. 

Adults have a body that is orange to orangish brown, or reddish brown, with a paler, nearly tan head. It has two vertical white stripes on its sides, one directly below the eye and the other in the middle of the body. The bars on these clownfish are extremely small, which sets them apart from other clownfish. Adult clownfish do not have a bar from across the nape of the neck, nor does it continue all the completely close to the base of the chin, as observed in other clownfish. 

The next stripe is smaller than the first and does not usually reach to the belly button on adults. Large adults can lose their mid-body bar completely or only have a small vestige near their dorsal fin. The pelvis and anal fin always are dark brown to black, while the tail fin is usually white.

Juveniles are light brown with two white stripes on the flanks and a yellow ventrally. There is still a Brick Red Oman variety, which has a brick red body and a brick red tail fin.

Oman Clownfish Size

The length of Brick Red Oman Clownfish is around 6.1 inches tall (15.49 cm).

Oman Clownfish Color

 It has two extremely narrow vertical bands, one at the head and the other mid-body, and its body colour ranges from orange to reddish brown. Color distinguishes juveniles from adults.

Difference between male and female Oman Clownfish

 Commonly, the female is so much bigger than the male.

Oman Clownfish Lifespan: 

15 Years- In captivity, the Clarkii complex has been known to live for 15 years. In the wild, they have been known to live for up to 13 years.

Behavior and Temperament

 The Oman Clownfish is a confident fish. This fish will thrive in a coral or a fish-only aquarium. Grown-ups may every once in a while chew on the polyps of some live corals, but it is generally reef safe. They can be protective and aggressive, just like all anemone fish, particularly as they get older. They can get along with a variety of aggressive but not overaggressive fish, as long as the aquarium is large enough for them to have their own space to protect.

Care level: Easy to Moderate.

Conversation Status:

 This species is not in danger of extinction. The population trend is a topic of debate. It is fairly common in the western Pacific Ocean. oman clownfish are commonly overused in the aquarium trade, and their natural habitat includes areas where dynamite fishing is practised. The host sea-anemone of the oman anemonefish may experience bleaching episodes, exposing them to predators.

AQUARIUM CONDITIONS for Oman Clownfish

Tank Set up for Oman Clownfish

Tank size: 

For only a single specimen, a minimum tank size of 30 (114 L) gallons is required, though 40-50 gallons is preferable, and 55 gallons is required for a couple or if maintaining with other fish.

Suitable for Nano Tank: No

Tank Setup: 

The aquarium is decorated with ocean shells or coral, which seem gorgeous, but the reason for this is that Oman clownfish get along with corals.

Live Rock Requirement: 

It’s for hiding places, yeah. When there aren’t any anemones available, rock formations with enough hiding areas are necessary.

Substrate Type: Any

Maintenance of the tank: 

Daily: Monitor the water purifier, surface temperature, particle density, and all other equipment in the aquarium on a daily basis. 

Weekly: Check the water quality at least once a week. 

Monthly: Each 2-4 weeks/as needed, replace up to 10 to 25% of the entire amount of water. Periodic introduction of new tank mates is also important.

  • Equipments and Tank setting

The Oman Anemonefish is a large clownfish with a lot of energy. For a single specimen, a minimum tank size of 30 (114 L) gallons is required, though 40-50 gallons is preferable, and 55 gallons is required for a pair or if keeping it with other fish. Keep in mind that smaller sump sizes cause water quality to degrade more quickly, necessitating weekly water changes of 5%. Despite their tolerance for less-than-ideal water quality, any marine fish exposed to it for an extended period of time will succumb to disease and illness.

These clownfish are always trying to swim and, once accustomed, will wander to the exterior in search of food. Clownfish could be managed to keep in a saltwater aquarium or a small reef fish. This fish requires an empty area to swim freely, as well as nooks and crannies to hide in. It will have many locations to retreat in a saltwater aquarium that is well adorned with stones.

Such clowns are commonly associated with anemones in the wild, but they do not require an anemone host in the fish tank. They will easily be adapted to a saltwater tank if one is not available. Even though they prefer a host anemone, those who will frequently try substituting a coral or some other arthropods, or even a rock framework.

Because this species is native to the tropics, aquatic water temperatures between 74°F and 82°F (23-28°C) and a pH range of 7.8 to 8.4. Extreme views of temperature above 90° F (32° C) or below 64° F (18° C) would be too much for them. The ideal temperature for spawning is between 79°F and 83°F (26°C-28°C).

It doesn’t require any special lighting, but if kept with a host, it will require bright lighting. Although transport of water is not important, it does require at least a sluggish circulation in the water reservoir to feed. They will probably have spent the majority of their time in their host, though the Oman Anemone, like many in its complexity, will occasionally wander away from it.

Oman Anemonefish Feeding Guide

Feed: 

Foods that seem to be extremely cold, flaked, or active

Diet:

The Anemonefish of Oman are omnivores. Zooplankton, benthic algae and weeds, small shrimp, amphipods, polychaete worms, and other small invertebrates are all eaten by Amphiprion members in the wild. The Oman Anemonefish eats everything. Copepods and algae are their primary food in the wild, although they will also eat barnacle appendages, crab fragments, worms, sponges, and tunicate larvae. They’ll eat a range of live, frozen, and flake foods in the tank. They will also eat algae that has grown organically in the tank and have a preference for copepods.

Flake Food: Yes

Pellet/Tablet: Yes

Live foods (shrimp, fish or worms): 

A few of the diet – live meals can be offered as a pleasure or when training to reproduce on a regular basis.

Vegetable Food: 50% of their diet

Meaty Food: 50% of their diet

Feeding Frequency:

 Feeding times throughout the day – Feed twice a day for adults and three to four times a day for juveniles. Increase the feed three times a day if you have a pair of Oman Clownfish in the reproductive phase.

Oman Clownfish tank mates

Compatible Other Fish:

The Oman Anemonefish should not be kept with other clownfish organisms because they are aggressive towards them. Clownfish made between 2 and 17 clicks in a row while being attacked or attacking. Seafarers or even fish keepers will occasionally hear “chirps” (aimed at larger fish) and “pops” (aimed at smaller fish) from them. When they are mating, they are actually deafeningly quiet. Pops are heard in pairs or one at a time, just before a chirp noise, so they could be having two separate dialogues! “Get out of here, Angelfish!” and “Get in line, you subordinate!”

Those who make the sound with their teeth, and the fangs act as an amplification, so the noises will depend on the species, much like a dialect or accent. There are 29 clownfish that make audio sounds, some of which are louder than the others. Tomato Clownfish, Clark’s Clownfish and Pink Skunk Clownfish are among the loudest three.

The differences in behaviour among clownfish of the same species are fascinating and easy to spot. A female’s constant dominance prevents a male from changing sex. A dominant clownfish will exhibit “agonistic behaviour,” while the sub – ordinate clownfish will exhibit “appeaser behaviour.” The sub – ordinate clownfish needs to react to the assertive fish’s specific actions:

  • Whereas if hostile fish, usually a female, is trying to chase and squawking, the subjugated clownfish, which can be a male/a subadult, will quickly tremble their body which makes having to click makes it sound as they stray upward.
  • The hostile clown fish’s jaw bursting causes the subjugated clownfish to shake their body or head. 
  • The hostile clownfish’s ventrolateral lean causes the subordinate clownfish to quiver. 
  • When a hostile clownfish exhibits dorsal starting to lean, the sub – ordinate clownfish exhibits ventral starting to lean.

List of compatible tank mates for Oman Clownfish are given below:

Peaceful fish: (But need to monitor, when place in a mini-tank) 

  • Gobies
  • Dartfish
  • Assessors 
  • Fairy wrasses

Semi-Aggressive: (But need to monitor and don’t place with any-other clown)

  • Anthias 
  • Clownfish 
  • Dwarf angels

Aggressive: (But need to monitor and place in a big aquarium)

  • Dottybacks 
  • 6-Line & 8-Line 
  • Wrasse Damselfish

Large Semi-Aggressive: 

  • Tangs 
  • Large Angels 
  • Large Wrasses

Shrimps, Crabs, Snails: (But need to monitor because Red Tamato Clown might eat them)

Safe:

  • Starfish
  • Feather Dusters
  • Bristle Worms
  • Flatworms
  • Clams, Scallops 
  • Oysters
  • Copepods
  • Amphipods 
  • Mini Brittle Stars

Non-compatible tank mates: 

These could be the worst tank-mates with oman clownfish:

Large Aggressive (Predatory):

  • Lionfish 
  • Groupers
  • Soapfish

Slow Swimmers & Eaters:

  • Seahorses
  • Pipefish 
  • Mandarins
  • Others:
  • Triggerfish
  • Eels
  • Batfish
  • Some Puffers
  • Sharks/Rays
  • Wrasse-fish only

In each aquarium, only maintain one kind of clown. It’s not a good idea to drink clown species.

Symbiotic Relationship with Sea-anemones: 

A mutualistic relationship between a clownfish and an ocean anemone is known as symbiosis, and it occurs when they benefit each other. In the wild, clownfish stick with specific anemones to protect them from freshwater shrimp fish. In exchange, the anemone helps protect the clownfish from predators by using its stinging tentacles to keep them at bay. Clownfish get to be resistant to the anemone’s tentacles’ sting. Another advantage is that the clownfish can eat the leftovers of any meal that the anemone has captured. The clownfish will also clean up after themselves by trying to remove bits of flotsam and jetsam from the substrate. The anemone is also thought to be fed by the clownfish’s waste.

The Oman Clownfish is strongly associated with the following host anemones:

  • Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor)
  • Magnificent Sea Anemone, Ritteri Anemone (Heteractis magnifica)
  • Sebae Anemone (Heteractis crispa)
  • Beaded Sea Anemone (Heteractis aurora)
  • Merten’s Carpet Anemone (Stichodactyla mertensii)

Condy Anemones (Condylactis gigantea) should be added with caution. These are predatory anemones with a high mobility. They are not “clown hosting anemones.” Their sting is much greater than that of clownfish-hosting anemones, and any clownfish foolhardy enough just to engage it risks being eaten. “One day the clownfish was gone, and I kept the anemone well fed!” many people who had clownfish hosted by Condylactis have said.

Reef Compatible:  

In a reef setting, clownfish fit in perfectly, especially with a host anemone. Clownfish will typically not bother any corals, with the exception of picking algae off the base of a coral that they have adopted as a host. A host anemone will provide a rich naturalistic environment for your clown. While other fish avoid the anemones stinging tentacles lest they become its food, your clown fish will spend most of its time nestled down in it. Though sea anemones are a striking addition to any reef aquarium, they are more challenging to keep. If you decide to keep an anemone you must make sure its special needs are met. Even without an anemone, the Oman Anemonefish will still thrive.

 If you want to retain a sea-anemone, ensure that its unique requirements are addressed.

  • Mushroom Anemones – Corallimorphs
  • Feather Dusters
  • LPS corals
  • SPS corals
  • COLT corals
  • Rasta Corals – Sinularia spp.
  • Brain Corals – Trachyphyllia Radiata
  • Gorgonians, Sea Fans
  • Leather Corals
  • Hammer Corals
  • Toadstool Corals
  • Soft Corals (xenias, tree corals)
  • Star Polyps/Organ Pipe Coral
  • Zoanthids – Button Polyps, Sea Mats
  • Sponges, Tunicates

Predator Tank Compatible: No

Number to a tank:

You can store them alone or in pairs, but only one pair should be placed at a time. But if there are many partners, they may become aggressive.

How to Breed OmanClownfish?

Step 1:

In your aquarium, you may keep more than a couple of fire clowns. Therefore, please remember that only one of them will be a mating couple. The female is the bigger of the two, whereas the male is the tinier of the two. The remaining individuals will continue to exist as immature males. Pairing will happen on its own when the time is right; all you have to do is supply them with a tidy, loving, and safe habitat.

Step 2:

If you need to get things moving faster, make absolutely sure they’re eating a nutritious and calorically healthy diet. Most importantly, you should be sure to feed them a calorie and nutrient-balanced diet several times per day. Bottled foods are usually less healthy than live foods.

Step 3:

The Oman clownfish is not the easiest of the clownfish species to breed, but with persistence and patience, you should be able to achieve it. Fish grown in tanks are easier to reproduce than those collected in the wild. 

Step 4:

While Oman clownfish can change gender, they are born genderless. They turn into adolescent males in response to specific social cues, and when the time comes, a dominant transforms into a female. On the other hand, each of these clownfish has a different personality. Anemonefish have been observed to stray further from their host-anemone than others. 

Spawning:

  Clownfish pairing is highly tough, and if a female refuses to accept a potential male, the connection will terminate in that male’s death. It’s enough to raise a group of juveniles and let them form their own pairs. It is preferable to keep the pairing-couple separate from the remainder of the tank. It’s likely that you’ll keep both the female and the male in the same aquarium, and they won’t get along. It becomes harmful for that male.

Following the completion of the matching, it is a fantastic notion to provide the pair with plenty of high-quality, fresh meals. It’s even easier because spawning doesn’t require a sea-anemone. These fish are substrate breeders, meaning they prefer to lay their egg in a flat substrate or cave, such an inverted clay pot.

Pre-spawning Behavior: 

Whenever clownfish are courting, they use a variety of displays. Leaning away from each other with their ventral surfaces close, leaning towards one another with their dorsal surfaces nearer while scratching their heads, or head standing are all examples of this. As the spawn event approaches, the male and female will begin methodically cleaning an egg laying spot near an anemone on a rock or coral. This activity removes debris and algae from the area, allowing the eggs to cling to a clean surface.

This activity removes debris and algae from the area, allowing the eggs to cling to a clean surface.

Spawning Process:

 The Oman Anemonefish is still to be disclosed as having been born in captivity, despite the fact that so many clown fish species are being bred in captivity. There is no record of aquaculture in any laboratory. They will reproduce when the water temperature is 74° or higher, just like the other Clarkii species. Although they will spawn at temperatures ranging from 72 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit (26 to 28 degrees Celsius), it has been proven that the best quality eggs and larvae are produced at temperatures ranging from 79 to 83 degrees Fahrenheit (26 to 28 degrees Celsius).

 Tryst begins 3 to 5 days before spawning, when the female encourages the male to bite at the substrate with increasing frequency and severity as the big day approaches. The female’s belly increases in size with eggs during this time. During courtship, clownfish will tilt away from each other with their ventral surfaces close together, lean towards one another with their dorsal surfaces close together while scratching their heads, and/or one and both will start engaging in head standing.

Spawning takes place in the late morning or early afternoon and can last up to two and a half hours, with a clutch of 100 to 2500 eggs on average, depending on size of the female. The eggs are fanned and whispered to keep them independent of fungal infections and debris while they develop, as well as to keep them well oxygenated. These 2.2 to 4.4 mm long orange eggs will hatch 1 to 1.5 hours after sunset in 6 to 13 days, relying on water temperature. The Oman Anemonefish, intriguingly, will all hatch in under two hours. This species’ larvae swim into the surrounding water and enter the planktonic stage at a faster rate than most clownfish species.

Protection of their eggs:

 The eggs will be guarded by the male. The eggs are blown and sucked to keep them oxygenated and free of dirt and fungal infections, and this process becomes more intense the day of hatch. The eggs grow darker and have a silver sheen as they mature.

Hatching: 

Depending on water temperature, the majority of the eggs will hatch in 6-13 days. Around one to one and half hours after dark, the eggs hatch within 2 hours. After swimming into the surrounding water, the larvae enter the planktonic phase, which lasts 8-16 days.

Acclimatization

It’s preferable to acclimate a Oman Clownfish in a big bucket so it doesn’t fall out. Follow these steps to get started:

• Put your clownfish in a big bucket half-filled with water. 

• Shower for 45 minutes at a rate of 3 drips per sec to acclimatise. Your species will adapt to the water parameters in the aquarium during this period. 

• Using a fish-net, carefully place the fish in the aquarium once it has finished the acclimatisation phase. 

• Please remember that you are not using water from your fish’s house to fill up the tank.

How do you keep Oman Anemonefish with care?

These Clowns are extremely powerful and easy to care for. Beginner aquarists will have satisfaction with the Clowns as a first try at the saltwater hobby. If you conduct regular water changes, feed them a range of foods, and keep them in the correct tank with the proper tank mates, your anemonefish will live a long time.

Adorable clownfish prefer anemones in the wild, but they are perfectly fine in the aquarium without them. These clowns are perfectly satisfied to hide within the rockwork. If you’re going to be trying an anemone, give yourself at least 6 months to get expertise analysing and adding calcium, magnesium, and other minerals to your tank before adding this clownfish. They will adore their Bubble Tip Anemone, but if any other tank mates are present, they will get aggressive.

  • What could you do to keep your Clownfish from getting sick?

The Oman Clownfish is resilient and easy to spot. They thrive when provided with good water and a well-kept aquarium. Any marine fish subject to less-than-ideal groundwater resources for an extended amount of time will succumb to illness and disease, regardless of their tolerance for it. Fluid changes every two weeks will also help to restore trace amounts lost by the fish and corals.

They flourish when provided with good water and a well-kept aquarium. Any saltwater fish subjected to less-than-ideal quality of water for an extended amount of time will succumb to illness and disease, regardless of their resistance to it. Water change every two weeks will also help to restore trace amounts lost by the fish and reef.

If you detect any of the following criteria, be cautious:

  • Anorexia 
  • Strenuous breathing
  • White-spots on the body
  • Open-sores
  • Bulging eyes
  • Cloudy-eyes
  • Reddish fins 
  • Frayed and ripped fins

Anorexia is often the first sign of a problem. If your Clownfish refuses to eat, look for indicators of other illnesses so you can begin treatment sooner. The remaining indicators are self-evident and will tell whether or not oman anemonefish become ill. Hepatitis can enter your tank through live rock, corals, and fish that haven’t been cleaned or confined properly. The simplest method to avoid this is to carefully clean or quarantine whatever you intend to bring to the tank. Providing high-quality meals, clean, high-quality water, and appropriate tank mates are also helpful in preventing illness.

It is important to maintain an eye on the symptoms rather than putting the fish to the tough job of being introduced to medication and anguish.

  • Diseases

As these fish are usually robust, disease is rarely a concern in a well-kept aquarium. However, if they do become unwell, some illnesses can be fatal. Clownfish are susceptible to the same various ailments that affect other saltwater fish, including fungal, bacterial, parasitic, and other infections. All marine fish will become ill if better water quality is not maintained, the temperature swings excessively, or the fish is agitated as a result of inadequate tankmates. A distressed fish appears to be more prone to sickness.

Be careful if you noticed the following Disease:

  • Brooklynellosis, often known as Clownfish-Disease/Brooklynella hostilis (Brook)
  • Marine Ich/Cryptocaryon irritans/Velvet Disease/White Spot Disease Crypt
  • Uronema (Uronema marinum)
  • Oodinium ocellatum (Synonyms: Amyloodinium ocellatum, Branchiophilus maris)

These are mostly parasitic infections.

  • Treatments:

The easiest to treat is crypt (saltwater Ich), and they’re all treatable if caught early enough. The parasitic skin flagellate Marine Velvet is one of the most common problems in marine tanks. It’s a fast-moving disease that mostly targets the gills. Brook takes 30 hours to kill, but Uronema is one of the shortest, taking as little as 24 hours to kill. When a fishkeeper increases salinity to treat other conditions but does not take place, uronema develops. This parasite thrives in saltwater with a dry density of 1.013 to 1.020. If you’ve had a disease, be sure to treat it with a regular salinity of about 1.023 or a lesser salinity of about 1.009.

Faster Treatment and other 37 percent Formaldehyde solution preparations will work for both salinity levels, however the lower 1.009 will help with the oxygen content. The percentage of oxygen in the water increases as the salt level decreases. “When fighting Brook or Crypt, I realised that if I utilised the proper hyposalinity of 1.009, no higher, my clownfish just seems to actually breathe and was less frightened”… Carrie McBirney.

Illnesses can enter your tank through live rock, corals, and fish that haven’t been cleaned or quarantined properly. The simplest solution to avoid this is to carefully clean or quarantine whatever you intend to bring to the tank. Providing high-quality meals, clean, high-quality water, and adequate tank mates are also helpful in preventing illness.

FAQs Related To Oman Clownfish

What does an oman clownfish seem like?

Oman Clownfish orange, or a reddish or blackish color, and many show white bars or patches. Within species there may be color variations, most commonly according to distribution, but also based on sex, age and host anemone.

Is the Oman clown hostile?

They are semi-aggressive in behavior. But, as they grow older, they could become territorial and violent. It might be calm, but it will become aggressive if some other fish enters its area.

What is the maximum size of oman clownfish?

They can grow to lengths of 6.1 inches tall (15.49 cm).

Is it possible for female Oman clownfish to become male?

Omani clownfish are protogynous hermaphrodites, meaning they are born female. Females mature into males as they grow older, and they can even become male during their adult life cycle. They have “protandrous” characteristics, which means they can be either sex at any time during their lives.

Conclusion

In conclusion, we can agree that having Oman clownfish at home is a simple task for novices. The tank configuration, water conditions, and apparatus are all washable. It is critical that you first learn yourself, as feeding the Fire Clown is a difficult task. If you don’t know how many more and how often to feed your common clownfish, you’ll have health concerns. Tank companions must be carefully chosen to avoid your Oman clownfish becoming a victim of other fish or being hostile enough to ruin the tank’s surroundings. If properly maintained for, Oman Anemonefish can live as long as they can in captivity.
