The Black Onyx True Percula Clownfish is a rare and stunning species, native to the reefs of Papua New Guinea. They boast the classic, eye-catching coloration of black, orange, and white, making them highly sought after in the aquarium trade. These clownfish are generally more difficult to find than other species, but well worth the effort! Additionally, they are relatively low maintenance, making them a great choice for any aquarist. With their beautiful and unique appearance, these clownfish will be sure to provide a spectacular addition to any aquarium.

The Black Onyx True Percula Clownfish is an ideal addition to any experienced aquarist’s tank. Its need for a tank of at least 30 gallons and live rock makes it an excellent choice for those looking for a larger, more interactive addition to their aquarium. It is important to note that this species has a strong preference for certain anemones to host within and that the aquarium and lighting system must be able to accommodate the needs of the host anemone before purchase. Researching and providing the proper environment is essential in order to keep the Black Onyx Clownfish healthy and ensure its longevity. Additionally, it is important to keep in mind that this species can be timid and may take time to adjust to its new environment.

The Percula Clownfish is a common “starter” fish for saltwater breeders and can spawn near the base of the host anemone. The fry are very small after hatching and must be fed rotifers or natural copepods to survive.
