Captive-Bred Domino Clownfish from ORA® are very precious and unique. These offspring of Midnight Clownfish range from completely stripeless, to uniquely patterned Extreme Misbars. Occasionally you’ll find Midnight Clownfish with dots, with the help of Julian Sprung, ORA has named these fish Dominos. The peculiar white markings can be on the cheek as seen in the picture, or on any other area of the body. Single Dot Dominos occur with only one dot.
The Captive-Bred Clownfish has a unique advantage over wild-harvested species. Captive-Bred Clownfish are very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, it makes a great choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike.
The Domino Clownfish is also easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the largest of the pair and the two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. Clownfish are egg layers and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface and defend the eggs from other tankmates. The eggs will normally hatch in 8-11 days depending on the water temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers followed by baby brine shrimp.
The Domino Clownfish diet consists of almost any meaty food items and herbivore preparations.
