Darwin Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) Care
The Darwin Clownfish, Amphiprion ocellaris, is also known as the Ocellaris Black and White Clownfish. These hardy clownfish are aquacultured and have a black body with three white bands on each side.
Clownfish are omnivores and require a diet rich in both meaty and plant foods, such as mysis and brine shrimp, marine algae, and flake food. They love their food and may be aggressive when it comes to sharing with other tankmates.
The Darwin Clownfish can grow to be about 3″ and can be housed in aquariums as small as 30 gallons. These clownfish are hardy and vary from peaceful to semi-aggressive depending on the fish and the tank environment.
These fish are reef safe and will not bother coral or invertebrates.
