Very special thanks for the photo of this beautyful Amphiprion ocellaris "Nearly Naked" to Soren Hansen von Sea & Reef Aquaculture.
Nearly Naked Clownfish from Sea & Reef Aquaculture is a variation of the Ocellaris Clownfish. Like the Naked Clownfish the Nearly Naked Clownfish forgot its stripes back in the anemone. The difference is that Nearly Naked Clownfish still has a little bit of white in various configurations. There can be white dots on its cheeks, a partial head bar or other minor white markings. Each Nearly Naked Clownfish is highly unique making them a very sought after fish.
Aquarium host anemones
Like the regular Ocellaris Clownfish the Midnight 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).
