Holacanthus clarionensis

Post by Trond Erik on Sat Aug 03, 2013 2:49 pm


HOLACANTHUS CLARIONENSIS
Norsk navn: Clarion keiser.
Engelsk navn: Clarion angelfish.

.:SLEKTSBESKRIVELSE:.
Holacanthus er en slekt av keiserfisk med åtte arter, flere av dem populære i saltvannsakvarier.

.:UTSEENDE:.
Som ung er Holacanthus clarionensis gul med neonblå, vertikale striper. Når den blir eldre vil stripene forsvinne og etterlate en gyllen, oransje kroppsfarge, mørkere ansikt og blå kant på finnene. Den kan bli 20 cm i lengde.

.:ATFERD:.
H. clarionensis regnes som den enkleste og mest hardføre av keiserfiskene. Dessverre er den isolert geografisk og de assosierte kostnadene ved fangst og transport har ført til svært høye priser. Så vidt jeg vet har den bare vært til salgs i Norge én gang, og da til 40 000,-.

Som andre keisere er hannen aggressiv ovenfor andre hanner av samme art. Den vil også kunne krangle med andre store keisere, men vil la dvergkeisere våre i fred.

.:MATVANER:.
Det er usikkert hva H. clarionensis lever av i naturen, men det er vel ikke usannsynlig at den har en allsidig diett der blant annet svamper inngår. I akvarier vil den kunne nappe på det meste, inkludert korall-polypper og muslinger.

.:SYKDOM:.

.:OPPDRETT:.
Bali Aquarich lyktes med oppdrett i 2013 og oppdrettede individer er nå til salgs i USA.

.:VANSKELIGHETSGRAD:.
Dette er en enkel fisk å holde i fangenskap, men den kan nappe på koraller og den kan krangle med andre større keisere. Dessverre er den for dyr for de aller, aller fleste.

By Leonard Ho - Posted Aug 07, 2013 07:20 PM

Quality Marine (wholesale) has announced the first-ever availability of aquacultured Clarion Angels in North America. These "holy grail" angelfish are being bred by Bali Aquarich and are now hitting the market. We wait to see their retail prices, but don't expect the angels to come cheap. We share QM's press release after the jump, complete with sexy photos of this amazing fish.

Aquacultured Clarions are available now!

In a Western Hemisphere First, An Aquacultured Clarion Angel is Available!

Quality Marine is proud to announce the first Aquacultured Clarion Angel (Holacanthus clarionensis) available for sale in North America. This fish was produced from a captive breeding at Bali Aquarich, where it was reared to a salable size. It was then shipped to the United Kingdom for a brief period and now it is beginning its North American tour in Southern California, here at Quality Marine.

What makes the Clarion so special?

The Clarion Angel is a gorgeous fish that adapts very well to aquarium environments. They are hardy and are "personable" tank inhabitants. Though they can be pugnacious with tank mates, they generally learn to recognize people as feeders and will interact with them.

This is a fish with a very limited distribution, coming only from shallow water tropical reef locations from the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico down to Clipperton Island. The majority of the species are found in the Revillagigedo Islands. The population size, distribution, and habitat that this fish prefers is so limited that it could easily be over exploited. It is currently listed as "vulnerable" by the IUCN Red List. Quality Marine does not import or stock wild Clarion Angels.

Biology / Captive Care

Juveniles of this species are generally solitary and territorial and occasionally have been seen acting as cleaner fish. Adults are generally also observed singly, and have also been observed acting as cleaners for very large rays. They also occasionally form large groups which some literature suggests is for breeding.

H. Clarionensis has a fairly small adult size at 7.8 inches. Like most fish in their genus, a large portion of their wild diet consists of sponge matter, with some aquarists reporting that coloration fades if food containing sponges is not offered. The blue barring of this juvenile fish will fade and it will end up being a brilliant gold coloration.

Quality Marine

Celebrating over 35 years in business, Quality Marine continues to provide the Public and Retail Aquarium industry with the highest quality, most sustainable and widest selection of both wild and aquacultured marine fish and invertebrates. Quality Marine works tirelessly to support responsible operators that collect in a sustainable manner and protect the reef habitat. We encourage all industry professionals to do the same. We continue to exhibit our commitment to helping make this industry a better one, to help protect our resources for not only the longevity of our trade, but also for the preservation of the environment. As our business grows, we still focus on the keys to our success, Quality, Variety, and Service, second to none.

Reef Builders wrote: Quality Marine brings aquacultured Clarion Angel to US market

By Brian Blank on Aug 08, 2013

The beautiful Clarion angelfish is coming to the US market thanks to Quality Marine getting ahold of aquacultured specimens from Bali Aquarich. The Bali Aquarich team raised the fish to a size where they would be hardy enough for shipping and then the fish made their way to the UK before coming to Southern California.

Besides being stunning members of the Holacanthus genus, the Clarion angelfish add personality to the aquarium, adapting well to the environment. Another benefit is the reasonable size of the fish, measuring in just under 8 in. when adults.

These fish are native to a small region from the tip of Baja California down to Clipperton Island. Due to their limited population size, distribution and habitat this fish is considered vulnerable on the IUCN Red List and better left in its natural habitat than captured for the aquarium trade.

The amazing achievement by Bali Aquarich gives companies like Quality Marine the opportunity to offer this unique fish to the aquarium trade. In the official press release, Quality Marine stated they will not ever import wild-caught Clarion Angelfish.

We aren’t sure if this is just one specimen or a few. We don’t know what this fish will go for in the open market, but we can imagine it coming at a high cost.

Det ene individet som har blitt sendt ut har nå havnet i kontor-akvariet til sjefen hos liveaquaria.com. Han skal senere legge ut fisken for salg på Diver's Den (og den vil koste mer enn viltfangede individer). Her kan dere se film fra karet der den spiser:
