Tampa Pearl Hybrid Clownfish

$ 49.99


Description: Tampa Pearls have iridescent spots, showing luminous colors that seem to change at different angles, the newest variant of clownfish are downright stunning. Tampa Pearl Clownfish is a cross between a (A. ocellaris) and an (A. percula). The Tampa Pearl Clownfish is therefore a hybrid and has inherited great traits from both the Snowflake and the Picasso Clownfish. Like the Snowflake Clownfish each Tampa Pearl Clownfish is unique with regards to their white markings. Like fine wine Tampa Pearl becomes even more beautiful as they age.

Temperament & Captive Care: The temperament and care for Tampa Pearl Clownfish are very similar to that of the regular Percula & 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 Clownfish will host in Magnificent Sea Anemone (Heteractis magnifica) or Merten's Carpet Sea Anemone (Stichodactyla mertensii).

Aquarium host anemones: Like the regular Clownfish the Tampa Pearl will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones and many hobbyists keep Clownfish with the popular and hardy Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor).
