ORA® Captive-Bred Stubby Ocellaris Clownfish Information

The Stubby Clownfish is distinguished by black outlining and white bands that run across an orange body similar to that of the first False Percula, however, it is smaller in size which is why it’s called Stubby.

The Stubby Clownfish is a very loved fish. It can be seen together with other Clownfish inside the tank dependent on how big the tank is. They are extremely successful in aquariums and are very tranquil.

They do not require an Anemone to live and will accept many different Anemones as hosts such as corals. Their preferred Anemones to stay with are carpet Anemones Stichodactyla Gigantea as well as the magnificent Anemone Heteractis Magnifica.

These fish are tolerant of all fish-based foods and are ideal for aquariums with reefs. It is possible to keep multiple fish in one tank and they are best kept in groups.

Clownfish possess a distinct swimming pattern that differs from the majority of fish. This could be passed on by their genetic makeup resulting from years of wiggling in their Anemones tentacles. When the Clownfish moves within its tentacles that sting, the Anemone’s mucus will likely be splattered across the body of the Clownfish and helps to shield it from further stabbing.

In the wild, they reside in small groups, with one dominant female that is large with a smaller but active male as well as a couple of juveniles and males who are smaller. If the female is gone, the male who is the largest will switch sexes and become the dominant female, with the remaining Clowns climbing the ladder to follow behind it.
