Black Ocellaris Clownfish

Post by addicted2cichlid on Tue Aug 03, 2010 12:30 am

so its almost a must to have a "Nemo" in a saltwater tank. im hoping that keeping them in a pair will prevent them from suicide jumping like my solo guy (Murda) did last year. im slacking on the metal scraper for the glass, bit of algae to see through. any name ideas for the couple?

Nice looking pair. I see a couple of crabs too, at least I think I do. It's cool how there is so much living in saltwater tanks.

I'm not good with names...

They ARE cool. I haven't seen the all black ones before. I'm a sucker for
black and white fish, lol.
How big do they get? I liked the maroon ones, but was told they can
get pretty large, so I bought a small false percula instead, for my token
"Nemo".
The reef shop in Corpus Christi has a breeding pair of the large percula
and they churn out fry like clock-work! The fry are TINY.

they wont get very big mabey 4" or so... the females are always the larger of the pair, and get the biggest. However they grow NOTORIOUSLY SLOW, which is why people can stuff 2 lil clowns into a 5.5 gal etc...

my tank is appropriate for them to be in forever, but i wont notice any growth for probably close to a year. very slow.
