Ocellaris Clownfish Medium
The Ocellaris Clownfish is widely popular in the aquarium industry due to its striking orange body adorned with white bands outlined in black. The Ocellaris Misbar variety has broken or unconnected bars, while the Extreme Misbars display very few bars or only on one side of the body. This member of the Pomacentridae family is a great addition to almost any saltwater aquarium system. What sets this specific breed apart is that each Ocellaris Clownfish is captive-bred, promoting the conservation of fragile reef environments. Compared to wild-harvested species, the Captive-Bred Ocellaris Clownfish boasts unique advantages. It is hardier and more adaptable to the conditions found in home aquariums, making it suitable for both novice and experienced aquarists. Additionally, the Captive-Bred Ocellaris Clownfish can coexist with a variety of other captive-bred clownfish when introduced into the aquarium simultaneously. Breeding the Captive-Bred Ocellaris Clownfish is also easy in the home aquarium. The larger female will deposit eggs on a flat surface and fiercely defend them from other tankmates. After 6-11 days, the eggs will hatch, and the fry will need to be raised in a separate tank on a diet of rotifers and baby brine shrimp. This Clownfish is a voracious eater, accepting most meaty foods and frozen herbivore preparations.
