Very special thanks for the photo of this beautyful Amphiprion ocellaris "Wide Bar Mocha Gladiator" to Soren Hansen von Sea & Reef Aquaculture.

The Wide Bar Mocha Gladiator Clownfish is a new Sea & Reef signature designer clownfish. It is developed from the Wide Bar Gladiator Ocellaris Clownfish, which has much wider white bars than a regular Ocellaris Clownfish. In fact the white bars are about twice as wide compared to that of a regular ocellaris (or Maine Mocha) clownfish. We created our Wide Bar Mocha Gladiator Clownfish by breeding Wide Bar Gladiator Ocellaris Clownfish with our super black Darwin Ocellaris Clownfish. This is the first step in producing a Wide Bar Clownfish with darker coloration. We expect to produce an all-black and white version of this Wide Bar designer clownfish in the future.

The original Wide Bar Gladiator Ocellaris Clownfish was first bred by legendary fish breeder Bill Addison, owner of C-Quest hatchery, who created and named this designer clownfish. The production of Wide Bar Gladiator Ocellaris by C-Quest stopped in 2010 when the hatchery closed. Sea & Reef acquired some of the original Wide Bar Gladiator Ocellaris Clownfish stock and in February of 2014 we brought this beautiful designer clownfish back. We are proud to continue the development of this designer clownfish by giving you the Wide Bar Mocha Gladiator Clownfish.

Clownfish do not require host anemones to survive or thrive. However, in most cases they will readily accept them. Wide Bar Mocha Gladiator Clownfish will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones. 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)
