ORA® Captive-Bred Gladiator Clownfish Information
The Gladiator Ocellaris Clownfish has elegant flowing lines and curves that are accentuated by an orange-colored body. The pattern could or might not be symmetrical on both sides, and the markings may differ.
This Gladiator Ocellaris is a very well-known fish that can be found together with other Clownfish inside a tank, according to how big the tank is. It was also among the very first marine aquarium fish to successfully breed in the wild. They thrive in aquariums and are very tranquil.
The clownfish doesn’t require an Anemone to live but can accept a variety of Anemones as hosts and even corals. Their preferred Anemones to stay with are carpet Anemones Stichodactyla Gigantea as well as the magnificent Anemone Heteractis Magnifica.
They are tolerant of the majority of fish food and are ideal for aquariums with reef tanks. It is possible to keep multiple in one tank and they are best kept in groups.
Clownfish possess a distinct swimming pattern that differs from the majority of fish. It is probably passed down by their genetic makeup resulting from years of wiggling in their Anemones. While the Clownfish moves within its tentacles that sting, the Anemone’s mucus may be spread over the body of the Clownfish and helps to shield it from further stabbing.
In the wild, they live in small groups that include one dominant female that is large and a smaller, active male as well as a couple of males and young ones. When the female is gone, the male with the biggest size will change sex and become the dominant female.
