Papua New Guinea’s Lightning Maroon Clownfish has spawned again, and this time it’s a much larger and more robust looking clutch. After more than two years of conditioning by Matt Pedersen the Lightning Maroon Clownfish spawned for the first time about a month ago, and despite some stresses, Mama Lightnin’ has done the deed with her mate, also from PNG. If the half Lightning Maroon Clutch survives the next 24 hours there’s a realistic chance we could see some “interesting” looking baby Premnas biaculeatus. Go Lightning Maroon Clownfish, go Mama Lightnin’, you can do it girl, we believe in you!
