The Two-Band Clownfish is a member of the Clarkii complex. They are mustard yellow to rusty orange in color with 2 white bars located on the head and mid-body. There is no band on the base of the large lyre tail. They grow to a maximum size of around 4 inches. A. bicinctus will become territorial as they mature so more than 2 fish per tank is not recommended.

They have a very attractive swimming pattern that makes them look as if they were “bobbing up and down” continuously. This feature has won them a spot among hobbyists of all levels as one of their favorite clownfish.

The Two-Band Clownfish is found in the Red Sea and is rarely seen in the aquarium trade. These fish can live for more than 20 years in captivity.
