Bulb Anemones do well with strong lighting and medium currents. They will sting other corals, fish, and invertebrates. This anemone hosts a wide variety of clownfish in the wild and in captivity often A. ocellaris. They should be offered meaty foods when no clownfish are present and hosting. Sizing between 4" - 7".

The Black and White Ocellaris Clownfish, also known as the Black Perc, Black Percula Clown Anemonefish, or Black and White False Percula Clown and is normally found in association with anemones on the reefs of the Coral Sea. It can be found individually, or more commonly, in pairs or small groups within the same anemone such as Heteractis magnifica or Stichodactyla mertensii. These tank bred clownfish grow to a maximum size of 3 inches in the aquarium, and may be kept singly or in groups. The Black and White Ocellaris Clownfish is very distinctive with its jet-black body and three white stripes on each side. They are very hardy and are perfect for the novice or seasoned aquarist. The Black and White Ocellaris Clownfish is a good candidate for a reef aquarium. If introduced to the aquarium at the same time, many varieties of tank raised clowns can be maintained together in the aquarium. Tank bred clownfish are easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the largest of the pair, and two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. These fish are egg layers and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface, and defend the eggs from other tank mates.

Picassos are a highly sought after variant of the Percula Clownfish. The Picasso variant occurs naturally in the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea however it is exceptionally rare. These beautiful fish exhibit extra white mainly on their center stripe. These fish are graded on the amount of white present, the oddness of the striping, and the rarity of the markings.

Great to see updates on your tanks guys/gals. Is the database missing anything from your tank? Did you know you can add it yourself? IF you need help let me know.

    Sadly I haven't seen the babies since a few hours after putting them in the grow out tank. They are hopefully still in there, but they may have been eaten by some of the pods that are in that tank.
