I also think that something is amiss. I kept the 9 fish (product of a naked and a black ocellaris) for more than 4 months, and then they all died one by one, for no apparant reason. I was particularly sad when the one spot fish died…

The parents continue to spawn small nests in the nano on the counter of the fish store.

It's nice to see this old thread still kicking :D
Such large numbers of perfectly stripeless fish sold at bargain prices,but with dubious health/breeding performance suggested a drug induced condition,as Marcel suggested and Matt C now confirms it can be done.Would be great to know more,perhaps this could explain how misbars occur.
But after some few people like Kathy,Deniz and Matt have bred them,it seems established that naked is indeed a true genetic mutation,perhaps associated with other unhealthy genes which could explain the health & breeding issues and the weird head shape...
