Lightning Maroon Clownfish

The Lightning Maroon Clownfish is a gorgeous and rare fish, at this time, hailing from Papua New Guinea.  Matthew Pedersen has been keeping one since 2010, and has a blog about the ongoing breeding process. Feel free to read about the offspring he coaxed out of this fish, and how they are slowly developing their own interesting patterns: http://www.lightning-maroon-clownfish.com

I had the opportunity to visit this fish in Duluth, MN in December 2011, and capture a few images of it for my blog on ReefAddicts: www.reefaddicts.com/...Lightning-Maroon-Clownfish

Maybe one day more of us will get to enjoy one in our own tanks. There are some on the market these days, but they don't bear the beautiful markings of the mother fish we all fell in love with.
