Ocellaris Clownfish, members of the Pomacentridae family, are also known as Common Clownfish. The color pattern of these beautiful fish with their orange body striped with white bands, outlined in black - instantly brings dear, little Nemo to mind.* Clownfish are a Reefchaser favorite with the wobbly way they navigate through the water, making them a popular choice among beginners and veterans of the hobby.

Common Clownfish can grow to 3-4 inches in length. Like many other fish species, the females are larger than the males. The Common clownfish is very similar in appearance to the Percula clownfish, of the same genus. The "easiest" way to distinguish between the two species is to look for these 4 notable differences:

  • Ocellaris clownfish have 11 spines in the first dorsal fin, the Percula has 10 spines.
  • Ocellaris clownfish have thinner black edging outlining the fins than Percula clownfish.
  • Ocellaris clownfish usually have a taller dorsal fin than Percula clownfish.
  • Ocellaris clownfish have darker coloring surrounding their eye pupils, whereas, Percula clownfish usually show lighter orange around their pupils.

The diet should consist of varied vitamin enriched meaty foods along with various algae and plankton. A large portion of a clownfish diet in the wild consists of Marine Phytoplankton, which makes an excellent live feed for all of your Fish, Corals and other invertebrates.
