- Inventory on the way
The midnight clownfish is a domesticated variation of the wild ocellaris that has been selectively bred to display a striking jet-black coloration as adults, sometimes with orange on the face. Juveniles display a lighter deep warm brown coloration with black fins, and darken with age.
At a maximum size of 4", one might expect the midnight clownfish to require larger tanks, but they have a tendency to not stray from their chosen territories, making them a perfect fish for a 20gal or larger, though aggression may become an issue in smaller tanks, especially if they start breeding. Like most clowns, once established, midnight clownfish are very durable fish with long lifespans, and make great beginner fish.
Clowns typically aren't picky eaters, and will readily accept frozen, flake, or pellet foods.
