Premnas biaculeatus

The Gold Nugget Maroon clownfish is our most distinct clownfish variety to date.  Its unique appearance is the result of a genetic mutation that manifests in a similar way to the mutation that produces the Platinum Percula. However, this Premnas designer goes through a transition as it matures, where its body changes from white to shimmering gold.  The Gold Nugget’s fins are a dark maroon colour, edged in fluorescent orange trim.  Their eyes are dark and fierce-looking against the gold body.  Some individuals exhibit an icy blue iridescence on the edges of their bodies.  Appearances aside, these fish are entirely a Gold Stripe Maroon in every other regard, so care must be taken when pairing, choosing tankmates or choosing tank size.

Gold Nugget Maroons will be shipped as juveniles before their gold coloration develops.
