ORA® Captive-Bred Premium Gladiator Clownfish Info

The Premium Gladiator Ocellaris Clownfish has elegant lines that are smooth and curvaceous over the bright orange body. The pattern may or not be uniform on both sides and the markings may differ. The fish could display a helmet design and distinct white patterns.

This Premium Gladiator Ocellaris is an extremely popular fish that can be able to coexist alongside different Clownfish within the same tank according to how big the tank is. It was also among the very first fish species in the marine aquarium to be successfully bred in the wild. They thrive in aquariums and are extremely tranquil.

The clownfish does not require an Anemone to live but will take a variety of Anemones as its hosts and even corals. Their most preferred Anemones include carpet Anemones Stichodactyla Gigantea and the magnificent Anemone Heteractis Magnifica.

Clownfish have a distinctive swimming style that is distinct from the majority of fish. This could be passed on by their genetic makeup resulting from years of wiggling in their tentacles Anemones. While the Clownfish is twirling within the tentacles that sting, the Anemone’s mucus may be spread over the body of the fish and shield it from further injuries.

In the wild, they live in small groups that include one dominant female of a large size with a smaller but physically active male and a couple of juveniles and males who are smaller. When the female is gone, the male with the biggest size will switch sex, and then change into the dominant female, with the remaining Clowns ascending the ladder to follow behind the dominant female.
