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 a shimmering gold. The Gold Nugget’s fins are a dark maroon color, 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 body. 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. Photo by ORA
