These beautiful Black Ocellaris typically have an incomplete center or tail stripe, and occasionally they may have an incomplete head bar.

Their unique patterns make them highly identifiable and desirable. Misbars are not the result of selective breeding, they derive from developmental glitches in stripe patterns in the larval stage. Almost every spawn of A. ocellaris will result in some misbarred juveniles, but they are unpredictable, and each one contains a distinct pattern that produces a unique individual specimen.
