Captive-Bred Ocellaris Clownfish, like those of Mocha Clownfish have advantages over wild-harvested species. One of them is that Captive-Bred Ocellaris Clownfish are tough and more used to conditions that are common in marine aquariums. Therefore, they make a great option for both novices and experienced aquarists too. Mocha Clownfish can be kept together with other clownfish that are captive-bred, in the event that they are introduced to the aquarium simultaneously.

This aquarium fish like many other Ocellaris clownfish in captivity are easy to breed in a home aquarium. Females are usually the largest of the two as the fish generally stay close to each other in the aquarium. Mocha Clownfish is an egg layer. It will usually deposit eggs on a smooth surface and protect the eggs from tankmates. The eggs are usually born within 6 to 11 days, depending upon the temperatures. The fry need to be raised in separate tanks eating Rotifers, and then baby brine shrimp.

The Mocha Clownfish captive-bred is an omnivore and requires both meaty and non-meaty foods along with certain herbivore foods as part of their diet. A premium flake of marine food that has a high concentration of spirulina algae and freeze dried and frozen foods are widely accepted.
