Please Note: Due to variations within species, your item may not look identical to the image provided. Approximate size range may also vary between individual specimen.
Captive-Bred Clownfish like the Black Strom Clownfish have advantages over wild-harvested species. For one, the Captive-Bred Clownfish is very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, the Black Storm Clownfish makes a great choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike. The Black Storm Clownfish can be kept with a variety of other captive-bred clownfish, if introduced into the aquarium at the same time.
The Black Storm Clownfish, like several other captive-bred clownfish, 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 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.
The Captive-Bred 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.
