A majority of saltwater fish is wild-caught. Some will never breed in captivity hence catching them in the wild to ensure availability of stocks.

By the way, I once tried this fish. Easy to keep IME.


I like Banggai Cardinals.

Hope you can get a larger tank soon in which you'll be able to keep shoals of those fish.

4-6 Banggais will fit in it. 4 is preferable though to make sure tank is not overstocked.

But you said in the third post you're planning on 46 gallons.

You'll need one anemone per pair of clowns as they established territory on the anemones.

There are several species of clownfish. All fall on the category of Amphiprion.
Nemo is just an Amphiprion ocellaris.
