Overview :

Recently bred in captivity for the first time in America (and the second time in the world) thanks to the efforts of liveaquaria.com Director Kevin Kohen and staff. The rare McCulloch’s clownfish is only found in a limited, protected habitat near Australia. The McCulloch’s clownfish is not too difficult to keep. However, once again because of its rarity, it should be treated as a delicate species. For the McCulloch’s clownfish water temperature should be maintained between 72 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit; pH 8.1 to 8.4; dKH 8 to 12; salinity of 35 ppt. It is highly recommended that only the most dedicated hobbyists who are willing to set up a breeding operation should consider keeping the McCulloch’s clownfish.
