Mocha Latte Clownfish
4” (10 cm)
The Mocha Latte Clownfish is a designer clownfish that is a Mocha version of the Nearly Naked Clownfish. Think of it as a version that fits between the Nearly Naked Clownfish (orange version) and the Domino Clownfish (black version). We chose the name Mocha Latte for this clownfish due to the golden brown coloration combined with the white spots. Who doesn't like a Latte? Just like the Nearly Naked Clownfish and the Domino Clownfish, there are many variations of the white markings such as white cheek spots, head dot, partial hed bar, or other minor white markings. See picture below for examples. Each one is unique and they are excellent reef fish.
Temperament & Captive Care
The temperament and captive care requirements for Mocha Latte Clownfish is very similar to that of the regular Ocellaris Clownfish. It is peaceful and hardy. They thrive in saltwater aquariums with or without an anemone present.
Most clownfish are omnivorous feeders, meaning that they will consume a variety of different food types. In nature the diet of clownfish consists of crustaceans (such as copepods and amphipods), algae, polychaete worms, and leftovers from the anemone’s meal. Our captive bred fish are conditioned to eat a variety of aquarium diets including pellets, flake food, frozen Mysis shrimp, and frozen brine shrimp.
Aquarium host anemones
Like the regular Ocellaris Clownfish the Mocha Latte Clownfish will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones and many hobbyists keep it with the popular and hardy Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor). As a reference the natural host anemones of the regular ocellaris clownfish are Magnificent Sea Anemone (Heteractis magnifica), Giant Carpet Sea Anemone (Stichodactyla gigantean) and Merten's Carpet Sea Anemone (Stichodactyla mertensii).
