Although this fish has an outstanding coloration, it is just as easy to care for as any other captive-bred ocellaris clownfish. The only difference is the patterns. Instead of the standard three vertical white stripes, this fish has an orange body with fins elegantly outlined in black. Along with that is a small white mark behind the eyes. It is a unique designer clownfish that will attract many eyes. Clownfish are one of the easiest fish to keep. You can easily keep a clownfish if you have fine water quality and no predatory fish. Like all ocellaris clownfish, many anemone species will host this fish. Keep in mind that an anemone is not a requirement. If you want, you can also keep this fish in a pair. Clownfish typically don’t get along outside pairs, but some hobbyists have kept groups successfully. They are generally peaceful towards other fish, though.

Benefits of captive-bred fish
While all clownfish are hardy, captive-bred specimens are even more robust. Because they are born and raised in aquariums, they are more accustomed to aquarium life. Captive-bred fish such as this Naked with Dots ocellaris clownfish are also more resilient to disease. These fish handle the stress of shipping better than fish from the ocean. By purchasing captive-bred fish, you are helping the ocean by discouraging the wild-caught trade and supporting the captive-bred industry. Captive-bred fish make our hobby more sustainable!
