Mocha Ocellaris (Amphiprion ocellaris)

Description:                                                                                                                                                                           The Mocha Ocellaris is a color variant of the Black Ocellaris. They have a caramel colored body with three white stripes on each side. Some Mocha Ocellaris may have stripes that do not connect, and they are often referred to as misbars.

Behavior:
Like all clownfishes, 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. 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.
