Misbar clownfish are already interesting enough because ORA does not selectively breed them. They just sort of happen during the larval stage. If this happens for orange clownfish, it only makes sense that it happens for Black clownfish as well. Most of the time, all three bars or stripes are still present, but one or two of them may be disconnected or confined to be nothing more than just a dot. Sometimes a bar will be missing entirely. Misbar clowns almost appear to be painted. The disconnected stripes or missing stripes are entirely unpredictable, but they all look to be carefully crafted. The partial white stripes accentuate the deep black of the fish’s body. These fish can be kept in pairs and can be hosted by anemones. They are peaceful with other fish, but it is recommended that you avoid keeping them with large predatory fish.
- Feeding: Omnivore. These Misbar Black clowns will eat nearly any marine fish food, but if and when you can, you should try to feed higher quality foods such as live foods to ensure healthier, more vibrant fish.
- Water Parameters: ~78° F, dKH 8-12, pH 8.1-8.4, sg 1.020-1.025
- Temperament: Peaceful
- Reef Safe: Yes
- Color: Black bodies with varying stripes and bars. Some are fully connected, others are disconnected down the middle, while some bars are missing entirely. There are also specimens with dots in place of a stripe or bar.
Because these fish are captive-bred, they have increased disease resilience, are more accustomed to aquarium life, and are better able to handle the stress of shipping. Buying captive-bred fish benefits both you and the ocean.
