This Misbar Blood Orange Hybrid Clownfish is truly art in the form of a fish. It has a deep and vibrant orange and red body with big, bold white stripes. The stripes can be disconnected or missing. One or two of the stripes are disconnected, half formed, or reduced to a dots. Just like with Goldstripe Maroon Clownfish, these fish are large, growing up to six inches. They also have large finnage. From the Ocellaris Clownfish, they get thick black outlining the white stripes. They grow to be large showy clowns with beautiful flowing fins and sharp, bright colors. When it comes to aggression, they appear to be somewhere in between the peaceful Ocellaris and the semi-aggressive Goldstripe Maroon. To avoid, or at least reduce issues with aggression, add this fish after you add all of your shy fish. If you plan on keeping it with other semi-aggressive fish, add them at the same time. All of this is done to minimize territorial aggression. Misbar Blood Orange Hybrid Clownfish can be kept in pairs and can be hosted by anemones.

It is also well adapted to aquarium life and better able to handle the stress of shipping. By purchasing captive-bred fish you are helping the ocean by discouraging the destructive wild-caught trade while also supporting the sustainable captive-bred industry.
