Black Ocellaris (Amphiprion Ocellaris)

Description: With today’s successful breeding strategies, rarely are Black Ocellaris taken from the wild. Our blacks have been selectively bred for excellent color. Orange Face Black Ocellaris are aquacultured black ocellaris that have started to develop an orange face losing their black color just around the front of their head.
Behavior: Like all clownfish, Amphiprion ocellaris is a sequential hermaphrodite. The largest individual present will exert dominance and become reproductively female. The next largest fish will become reproductively male. Remaining smaller individuals are usually tolerated but will not be reproductively active.
Compatibility: Usually ignores reef invertebrates and corals. Clownfish sometimes adopt various corals and algae as substitutes for host anemones.
Food: Proaquatix specimens have been weaned to take aquarium pellets and flakes. Freshly frozen invertebrates such as ocean plankton, Mysis shrimp, and brine shrimp will be readily accepted.
