The Captive Bred Wide Bar Mocha Gladiator Clownfish was developed by breeding a Wide Bar Gladiator Clownfish with a super black Darwin Ocellaris Clownfish. The original Wide Bar Gladiator Ocellaris Clownfish was first bred by legendary fish breeder Bill Addison, owner of C-Quest Hatchery. These captive-bred clownfish grow to a maximum size of 3 inches in the aquarium, and may be kept singly or in groups.

The Captive Bred Wide Bar Mocha Gladiator Clownfish has a unique advantage over wild-harvested species. Captive-bred Clownfish are very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, it makes a great choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike.
Captive-bred clownfish are easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the largest of the pair, and two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. These fish are egg layers and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface, and defend the eggs from other tank mates. The eggs will normally hatch in 8-11 days depending on the temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers then baby brine shrimp.
The Captive Bred Wide Bar Mocha Gladiator Clownfish diet consists of meaty items such as frozen shrimp and herbivore preparations.
