Gold Flake Maroon Clownfish (Premnas biaculeatus)
The Gold Flake Maroon is a variation of the Gold Stripe Maroon that have exaggerated barring. Like all Gold Stripe Maroons, the stripes start out white and turn yellow as they mature.
Like all clownfishes, Premnas biaculeatus is a sequential hermaphrodite. The largest individual present will exert dominance and become reproductively female. The next largest fish will become reproductively male. The female will not tolerate other smaller individuals.
Usually ignores reef invertebrates and corals. Clownfishes sometimes adopt various corals and algae as substitutes for host anemones.
Proaquatix specimens have been weaned to take aquarium pellets and flakes. Freshly frozen invertebrates such as ocean plankton, Mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and chopped squid will be readily accepted.
