Lightning Maroon Clownfish (Premnas biaculeatus)
The Lightning Maroon is a naturally occurring designer clownfish. They exhibit unique patterns that resemble lightning bolts. Their coloration will darken, and the patterns will often intensify as the fish matures.
This variant of Premnas biaculeatus is only rarely found in the wild.
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.
