It is important to note that the Black & White Ocellaris Clownfish that we offer are aqua-cultured which makes them an extremely durable aquarium fish that is perfect for novices. Misbarred Black and White Ocellaris Clownfish have a distinct variant whose middle stripe is only a portion.
Like most clownfish, Black & White Ocellaris Clownfish should be kept in a single tank until a pair is brought together. It could strike other clownfishes or attack tankmates who move around its anemone host or territory. It is generally an ideal fish for the reef aquarium as it spends most of the time peacefully within its anemone. If you are planning to keep additional clownfish, it is recommended to keep them in an aquarium larger than 100 gallons and give each clownfish or pair its individual anemone. This will ensure that each fish has an ideal home, and the chances of quarreling are reduced. The addition of all clownfish in the same area will help lessen territorial disputes.
The Black and White Ocellaris Clownfish doesn’t require the host anemone in order to survive It is a treat for any enthusiast to see the symbiotic relationship that exists between the clownfish and the host anemone. The anemone is a secure sanctuary for the clownfish as its tentacles inflict painful stings to everyone except other clownfish. The clownfish in turn will chase fish away that is likely to grab the anemone, and then brings it leftovers from its food. The Ocellaris Clownfish prefers Long Tentacle Anemone, Rose Bubble Tip Anemone as well as Bubble Tip Anemone.
ORA® Captive-Bred Black & White Ocellaris Clownfish Diet
The Black & White Ocellaris Clownfish eats mysis shrimps and frozen herbivore recipes 4 times a week. The diet of these fish is mostly meaty food items, but they can eat algae-based food items too. Soaking all food items for fish with vitamins can help keep your fish healthy and reduce their susceptibility to illness. We suggest soaking its food in garlic, as well when you add new fish, and when you notice any other illness or ich appearing in your aquarium. Garlic can help to repel external parasites and increase the fish’s immunity.
