Description: Nearly Naked Clownfish is a variation of the Ocellaris Clownfish. Like the Naked Clownfish the Nearly Naked Clownfish forgot its stripes back in the anemone. The difference is that Nearly Naked Clownfish still has a little bit of white in various configurations. There can be white dots on its cheeks, a partial head bar or other minor white markings. Each Nearly Naked Clownfish is highly unique making them a very sought after fish.
Temperament & Captive Care: The temperament and care for Nearly Naked Clownfish are very similar to that of the regular Ocellaris clownfish. It is relatively peaceful and hardy and is a good beginner’s choice and easy to care for. They thrive in saltwater aquariums with or without an anemone present.
Feeding: Most clownfish are omnivorous feeders, meaning that they will consume a variety of different food types. In nature the diet of clownfish consists of crustaceans (such as copepods and amphipods), algae, polychaete worms and leftovers from the anemone’s meal. Our captive bred fish are conditioned to eat a variety of aquarium diets including pellets, flake food, frozen Mysis shrimp, and frozen brine shrimp.
Natural host anemones: Captive bred clownfish do not need an anemone to survive in a reef tank. However, keeping clownfish with an anemone fosters a symbiotic relationship that is fascinating to observe. In their natural environment Ocellaris Clownfish will host in Magnificent Sea Anemone (Heteractis magnifica) or Merten's Carpet Sea Anemone (Stichodactyla mertensii).
Aquarium host anemones: Ocellaris will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones and many hobbyists keep Nearly Naked Ocellaris Clownfish with the popular and hardy Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor).
