Midnight Ocellaris Clownfish are free of any kind of stripe or pattern. They are either fully black or black with some orange around the face. Although this color is unique and rare, the fish itself is easy to care for. It’s the same as any other ocellaris clownfish.
Midnight clownfish were not bred intentionally, but were instead a mutation of other designer clownfish. Although they are now selectively bred, only a small amount are found in every spawn, making them quite rare. The pitch black coloration of this clownfish is surprisingly uncommon among all fish available to the marine aquarium hobby. It will certainly attract eyes and start some conversations. It is fascinating how we have so many different colors of the same fish. The Midnight Clownfish will not disappoint!

This is a designer clownfish. Not only does that mean you have a unique and beautiful fish, but it also means that the fish was captive-bred. This variation of ocellaris clownfish can not be found in the ocean and is instead bred on land in an aquarium. This is great for both you and the ocean. Captive-bred fish are more disease resilient, more accustomed to aquarium life, and better at handling shipping stress. They help the ocean by supporting the captive-bred industry and discouraging the trade of wild fish.
Midnight Clownfish can be kept in pairs even with other designer ocellaris clownfish!
