Wide Bar Mocha Gladiator Clownfish
The development of the Captive Bred Wide Bar Mocha Gladiator Clownfish involved breeding a Wide Bar Gladiator Clownfish with a super black Darwin Ocellaris Clownfish. This new strain of fish was originally created by Bill Addison, a well-known fish breeder and owner of C-Quest Hatchery. When kept in aquariums, these clownfish can reach a maximum size of 3 inches and can be kept individually or in groups. This particular type of clownfish is highly sought after due to its attractive dark orange color and strikingly wide white bars, making it a must-have for Ocellaris Clownfish enthusiasts. One major advantage of captive-bred clownfish is their hardiness and ability to adapt to conditions found in home aquariums, which makes them a great choice for both novice and experienced aquarists. Breeding captive-bred clownfish is relatively easy and can be done in the home aquarium. The females tend to be larger than males, and pairs often stay close to each other. As egg-layers, they will deposit their eggs on a flat surface and fiercely defend them from other tank mates. Typically, the eggs will hatch in 8-11 days, depending on the temperature, and the fry must be raised in a separate tank and fed rotifers and baby brine shrimp. In terms of diet, the Captive Bred Wide Bar Mocha Gladiator Clownfish thrive on meaty foods like frozen shrimp and herbivore preparations.
