The Black Photon Clownfish is a hybrid between the black and white Darwin Ocellaris and Onyx Percula Clownfish. Juvenile fish display the usual orange coloration, but will darken to mostly black with orange accents on the face and underside over time. The Black Photon Clownfish was first bred and named by Dr. Sanjay Joshi, nicknamed “the Photon Man” for his work with LED lighting, lending this breed its name.
At a maximum size of 4", one might expect the Black Photon 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, Black Photon 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.
