Interestingly, ORA does not selectively breed Misbar clownfish because they occur naturally during larval development. The slight change shows off the vibrant and deep orange that clownfish have even more. Just like with other ocellaris clownfish, Misbar clowns can be kept in pairs. You can pair them with other designer ocellaris clownfish which would be especially intriguing. Although, having two of the same kind of clownfish is special as well. It’s up to your taste. They are peaceful with most other fish, but you should avoid keeping them with predatory fish. While there are other factors that come into play, you can generally keep a pair of Misbar clownfish in an aquarium as small as 20 gallons. They are a great choice for beginners and advanced hobbyists alike.

Wild-caught fish are bad for you and bad for the ocean. Fortunately, all Misbar clownfish are bred in captivity. These fish come with great benefits for you. They are hardier, more disease resilient, more adjusted to aquarium life, and better able to handle shipping stress than their wild-caught counterparts.
