The Captive-Bred True Sebae Clownfish, also known as Seba’s Anemonefish, is an impressive specimen, boasting a black body with wide white stripes and an orange head. Its anal fin is a vibrant yellow, and its white to yellow tail creates a striking contrast. This species differs from the Sebae Clownfish in its main body color being black rather than brown. The True Sebae is aptly named, as its Misbarred pattern is truly unique. It is an eye-catching species that is sure to draw attention in any aquarium. Furthermore, it is an easy species to care for, making it a popular choice among aquarists of all levels.

The Captive-Bred True Sebae Clownfish is an ideal choice for a reef aquarium, as it is very hardy, durable and easy to maintain. The aquarium should be of at least 30 gallons in size, and an anemone such as Bubbletip Sea Anemone should be provided to act as a host. With the proper introduction, several varieties of captive-bred clowns can live together in harmony. This makes the Captive-Bred True Sebae Clownfish an excellent choice for novice and expert aquarists alike.

Captive-bred clownfish are easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the largest of the pair, and two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. These fish are egg layers and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface, and defend the eggs from other tank mates. The eggs will normally hatch in 6-11 days depending on the temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers and baby brine shrimp.
