Captive Bred White Stripe Maroon Clownfish (Premnas biaculeatus)
White Stripe Maroon Clownfish (Premnas biaculeatus)
A maroon-colored clownfish with three white stripes.
This species naturally lives among the tentacles of bubble-tip anemones (Entacmaea quadricolor). This natural behavior protects wild clownfishes from predators. Proaquatix clownfishes do not require anemone hosts but will accept them if present. This species is a case of convergent evolution, where it has independently evolved symbiosis with anemones, without inheriting this trait from phylogenetic relatedness to Amphiprion.
Range extends from western Indonesia to Vanuatu, northward to Taiwan, and southward to northern Great Barrier Reef.
Like all clownfishes, Premnas biaculeatus is a sequential hermaphrodite. The largest individual present will exert dominance and become reproductively female. The next largest fish will become reproductively male. The female will not tolerate other smaller individuals.
Usually ignores reef invertebrates and corals. Clownfishes sometimes adopt various corals and algae as substitutes for host anemones.
specimens have been weaned to take aquarium pellets and flakes. Freshly frozen invertebrates such as ocean plankton, Mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and chopped squid will be readily accepted.
