Overview

The Black Onyx True Percula Clownfish originates from the reefs of Papua New Guinea, and are a hard find in the trade. They are a beautiful species of clownfish with the classic patterns of black, orange and white.

The Black Onyx True Percula Clownfish does best in an aquarium of 30 gallons or larger with plenty of live rock. They may form relationships with the following species of anemones; Carpet (Stichodactyla sp.), Sebae (Heteractis crispa), Bulb (Entacmaea quadricolor), or Ritteri (Heteractis magnifica). Always be sure that your aquarium and lighting system will support the needs of the host anemone before incorporating one into the aquarium.

The Percula Clownfish, like several other clowns, can be bred in the aquarium, and is one of the most common "starter" fish for saltwater breeders. They will typically spawn within the proximity of the base of the host anemone. The fry are very small after hatching and must be fed rotifers or natural copepods in order to survive.

In nature, the Percula Clownfish is an omnivore. Offer a varied diet of mysis and vitamin enriched brine shrimp, and a quality flake food.
