New Age of Aquariums: Eco-Friendly Tropical Fish Aquariums

Responsible tropical fish companies help assure that the colorful residents of your home saltwater tank were captured in an environmentally friendly manner.

PERCULA CLOWNFISH (Amphiprion percula). Made into a household name with the film Finding Nemo, these fish are colorful, playful, and quick to adapt to aquarium life. They’re even more interesting when they live with a host anemone, whose stinging tentacles provide a protective home (clownfish are immune to the jolt). Many clownfish species are now mass produced in hatcheries.
