ABOUT

The Black Storm Clownfish is a distinct designer clownfish that derives its lineage from a mutation that appeared during the selective breeding process. The Black Storm Clownfish demonstrates an exaggerated white body pattern with an almost entirely white face with black eyes. This endearing “panda pattern” is further accentuated by gorgeous black patterning expressed in random forms, ensuring each individual is truly a completely unique fish.

The Black Storm Clownfish does best, housed in an aquarium of at least 20 gallons or larger with plenty of live rock. It may form a symbiotic relationship with the certain species of anemones. Though the Black Storm Clownfish does not require an anemone to thrive, if you choose to house an anemone, always be sure that your aquarium and lighting system will support the needs of the host anemone before incorporating one into the aquarium.

Like several other clownfish, these can be bred in the home aquarium with relative ease and is one of the most common “starter” fish for saltwater breeders. The female will be the larger of the pair, and two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. The ORA Black Storm Clownfish is an egg layer and will typically deposit the eggs on a flat surface or within the proximity of the base of the host anemone and defend the eggs from other tank mates. The eggs will normally hatch in 6-11 days depending on the temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers and eventually baby brine shrimp.

This clownfish is an omnivore, requiring both meaty foods as well as some greens in their diet. A high-quality marine flake food, rich in spirulina algae, as well as freeze-dried and frozen foods are readily accepted.
