The Black Photon Clownfish is a cross between the Black and White Darwin Ocellaris and Onyx Percula Clownfish. The juvenile clownfish are orange and brown in the color. The brown color that is displayed on the juveniles transforms into solid black as they mature and age. The orange hue on the belly, face, and anal fin is still present. These clownfish that are captive-bred reach a maximum size of 3 inches in an aquarium. They can be kept as a single fish or in groups.

The Black Photon Clownfish is very attractive thanks to its dark orange coloring and contrast white. These stunning clownfish were created through Dr. Sanjay Joshi. Dr. Sanjay Joshi has expertise with led lighting theory and technology.

It is believed that the Black Photon Clownfish has a distinct advantage over species that are wild-harvested. Captive breeding Clownfish are extremely durable and more used to the conditions in home aquariums. This makes them the ideal choice for novices and experienced aquarists.

Captive-bred clownfish can be easily bred in your home aquarium. Females are the biggest of the two, and the two fish are likely to remain close to one another within the aquarium. These fish are egg-layers and deposit their eggs on a flat surface and will protect eggs from the tankmates. The eggs usually hatch between 6 and 11 days, based on the temp. The fry should be kept in a separate tank with a diet consisting of baby brine shrimp and rotifers.

Captive-bred Clownfish are omnivores they require meaty and non-meaty foods and some greens as part of their diet. A high-quality flake of marine food that is rich in spirulina algae, as well as freeze-dried and frozen food items, is easily accepted.
