Overview

The Captive-Bred Naked Ocellaris Clownfish is a singularly exceptional color variety of the popular Ocellaris Clownfish. What distinguishes this specific color variety from conventional Ocellaris Clownfish is its vibrant “monochromatic” appearance lacking bars or stripes on its body. This attractive captive-bred clownfish adds uncommon visual interest to your aquarium, making it a popular choice for many marine aquarium hobbyists.

The Captive-Bred Naked Ocellaris Clownfish does best housed in an aquarium of at least 20 gallons or larger with plenty of live rock. It may form a symbiotic relationship with the following species of anemones; Carpet (Stichodactyla sp.), Sebae (Heteractis crispa), Bulb (Entacmaea quadricolor), or Ritteri (Heteractis magnifica). Though the Captive-Bred Naked Ocellaris Clownfish does not require an anemone to thrive, if you choose to house an anemone, always be sure that your aquarium and lighting system will support the needs of the host anemone before incorporating one into the aquarium.

Captive-Bred Ocellaris Clownfish like the Captive-Bred Naked Ocellaris Clownfish have advantages over wild-harvested species. For one, Captive-Bred Ocellaris Clownfish are very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, the Captive-Bred Naked Ocellaris Clownfish makes a great choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike. The Captive-Bred Naked Ocellaris Clownfish can be kept with a variety of other captive-bred clownfish, if introduced into the aquarium at the same time.

Captive-Bred Naked Ocellaris Clownfish, like many other captive-bred Clownfish, can be bred in the home aquarium with relative ease and is one of the most common "starter" fish for saltwater breeders. The female will be the larger of the pair, and two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium.

The Captive-Bred Naked Ocellaris Clownfish is an egg layer and will typically deposit their eggs on a flat surface or within the proximity of the base of the host anemone, and defend the eggs from other tank mates. The eggs will normally hatch in 6-11 days depending on the temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers and eventually baby brine shrimp.

The Captive-Bred Naked Ocellaris Clownfish is an omnivore, requiring both meaty foods as well as some greens in their diet. A high quality marine flake food, rich in spirulina algae, as well as freeze-dried and frozen foods are readily accepted.
