Description:
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.

Natural Ecology:
This variant of Premnas biaculeatus is only rarely found in the wild.

Behavior:
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.

Compatibility:
Usually ignores reef invertebrates and corals. Clownfishes 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, brine shrimp, and chopped squid will be readily accepted.
