The Captive-Bred ORA Ocellaris Clownfish has unique advantages over wild-harvested species. For one, the Captive-Bred Ocellaris Clownfish is very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, it makes a great choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike. The Captive-Bred Wyoming White Clownfish can also be kept with a variety of other captive-bred clownfish, if introduced into the aquarium at the same time.
The Captive-Bred Wyoming White Clownfish is also easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the largest of the pair and the two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. The Captive-Bred Wyoming Clownfish is an egg layer and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface and defend the eggs from other tankmates. The eggs will normally hatch in 6-11 days depending on the water temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers followed by baby brine shrimp.
This Clownfish is an aggressive eater. It will accept most meaty foods and frozen herbivore preparations.
