Description: The Ocellaris Clownfish is the most familiar species of clownfish and was made famous in the Disney movie “Finding Nemo”. It is bright orange with three white stripes. All white stripes are outlined with a narrow black edging and the fins typically have a thicker black edging. This species is often confused with the Percula clownfish (Amphiprion percula). Ocellaris clownfish have characteristics that are different from A. percula, including a more narrow black edging outlining the white stripes, black iris of their eyes (compared to an orange iris in A. percula) and 10-11 spines of the first dorsal fin (compared to 9-10 dorsal fin spines in A. percula.
Temperament & Captive Care: The temperament and care for Ocellaris 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 Ocellaris Clownfish with the popular and hardy Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor).
