Gold Nugget Maroon Clownfish - Captive Bred
The Gold Nugget Maroon is a designer variant of the Gold Stripe Maroon clownfish. This designer Maroon clownfish goes through a color transition as it matures, where the body changes from white to brilliant gold. Their fins are maroon in color, like wild-type Premnas biaculeatus.
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.
Proaquatix 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.
