Ocellaris Clownfish

The Ocellaris Clownfish may be one of the worlds most recognizable and popular aquarium marine fish. Ocellaris Clownfish are known as False Percula Clownfish and Anenomefish. Can be kept in groups, but one individual will eventually dominate and may pick on the others, especially if space and shelter are limited. Rarely aggressive towards other clownfish species. Female Clownfish are usually larger than the males. Associates with (Hosts) anenomes both in wild and aquaria.

Feed a varied diet (2x daily) including meaty food items such as frozen sysid shrimp, enriched brine shrimp as well as frozen or flake preparations for herbivores. (Credit - "A Pocket Expert Guide, Marine Fishes")
