The Mocha Storm Clownfish is one of many designer clownfish available from ORA. This clownfish has a pearly white body with several patches of orange-brown, sort of well, mocha colored. These patches tend to be around each fin. There is a large one around the first dorsal fin and a small patch around the second dorsal fin. The tail fin is brown, while there is also a patch around the anal and pelvic fins. The pectoral fins are brown too. Along with that, there are some small patches around the face, usually on the mouth and under the eye. While these patches tend to occur in the same location on the fish’s body, the exact shape and size of the patches are completely unique to each fish. These fish have amazing colors and patterns, but when it comes to care, they are the same as any other ocellaris clownfish. They are aggressive eaters and they are tolerable to a wide range of tank conditions. Mocha Storm Clownfish get along well with other fish other than other clownfish. If you want to keep multiple clownfish, the best thing to do is keep them in a pair. You can keep a pair of two Mocha Storm Clowns or a mix with one Mocha Storm and some other ocellaris variant. Of course, these fish can be hosted by certain anemone species, but an anemone is not required.

Because this fish is captive-bred by ORA, it is hardier and more resilient to disease than wild-caught ocellaris clownfish. It is also far less likely to carry disease in the first place because it has not been exposed to as many fish as wild-caught fish are. Captive-bred clownfish such as this Mocha Storm Clown are better adapted for aquarium life and better able to handle the stress of shipping as well. By purchasing captive-bred fish, you are helping the ocean by discouraging the harmful wild-caught trade and supporting the captive-bred industry instead. This makes our beloved hobby more sustainable!
