Overview

The ORA® Captive-Bred Misbar Onyx Percula Clownfish originates from the reefs of Papua New Guinea, and is a not very common in the trade. This is a beautiful species of clownfish with the classic patterns of black, orange and white misbar stripes, or incomplete white stripes.

The ORA® Captive-Bred Misbar Onyx Percula Clownfish does best in an aquarium of 30 gallons or larger with plenty of reef 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 ORA® Captive-Bred Misbar Onyx Percula has other unique advantages over wild-harvested species. For one, the Captive-Bred Clownfish is very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, it makes an excellent choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike. The ORA® Captive-Bred Misbar Onyx Percula can also be kept with a variety of other captive-bred clownfish, if introduced into the aquarium at the same time.

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.
