Description: This was a one-in-a-million mutation, instead of the golden coloration and swirly patterns of the Mocha DaVincis, this fish displays an exaggerated white pattern that has more straight lines. Furthermore, this fish turns jet-black very early on. The mutated Mocha DaVinci clownfish was paired up with a Black Ocellaris Clownfish with the goal of creating offspring with a pattern similar to its unusual parent. It quickly became apparent that the offspring looked very different from the mutated Mocha DaVinci Clownfish. The offspring displayed an even more exaggerated white body pattern with an almost entirely full-white face mask. The Black pattern on the fish took shape as a combination of blotches and circles. Although this is a DaVinci Clownfish mutation, they look very different and therefore believe that this mutation should not be called Black DaVinci Clownfish.
Temperament & Captive Care: The temperament and care for BlackStorm Clownfish are very similar to that of the regular Ocellaris clownfish. It is relatively peaceful and hardy and is a good beginner’s choice and easy to care for. They thrive in saltwater aquariums with or without an anemone present. Like all clownfishes, Amphiprion ocellaris is a sequential hermaphrodite. The largest individual present will exert dominance and become reproductively female. The next largest fish will become reproductively male. Remaining smaller individuals are usually tolerated but will not be reproductively active.
Feeding: Most clownfish are omnivorous feeders, meaning that they will consume a variety of different food types. In nature the diet of clownfish consists of crustaceans (such as copepods and amphipods), algae, polychaete worms and leftovers from the anemone’s meal. Our captive bred fish are conditioned to eat a variety of aquarium diets including pellets, flake food, frozen Mysis shrimp, and frozen brine shrimp.
Natural host anemones: Captive bred clownfish do not need an anemone to survive in a reef tank. However, keeping clownfish with an anemone fosters a symbiotic relationship that is fascinating to observe. In their natural environment Ocellaris Clownfish will host in Magnificent Sea Anemone (Heteractis magnifica) or Merten's Carpet Sea Anemone (Stichodactyla mertensii).
Aquarium host anemones: Ocellaris will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones and many hobbyists keep Ocellaris Clownfish with the popular and hardy Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor).
