While the Goldstripe Maroon Clownfish (premnas biaculeatus) is naturally found in Sumatra, this one was photographed in my family’s home aquarium in our living room. Named “Sashimi”, she was the first addition to our saltwater tank several years ago. Although this variety of clownfish is considered to be one of the most aggressive of the species, Sashimi coexists peacefully with the other inhabitants of our tank. The Goldstripe Maroon Clownfish is also known to rearrange items in the tank to their liking, which Sashimi does on a regular basis making her one of the most entertaining fish in the tank to watch.
