Picasso Clarkii (Amphiprion clarkii)
The Picasso Clarkii is an uncommon variant of the Clarkii clownfish. This variety exhibits a yellow to dark brown coloration with 2 to 3 white stripes and exaggerated smooth barring.
Like all clownfishes, Amphiprion clarkii 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.
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.
