Mocha Storm (Amphiprion ocellaris)
Description: Our Mocha Storm clownfish are currently produced by crossing an Orange Ocellaris Ocellaris or Orange Gladiator Ocellaris. The result is a clownfish that exhibits the distinctive white pattern of the Black Storm, but with a rich caramel coloration rather than black.
Like all clownfishes, Amphiprion ocellaris is a sequential hermaphrodite. The largest individual present will exert dominance and become reproductively female. The next largest fish will become reproductively male. Remaining smaller individuals are usually tolerated but will not be reproductively active.
Usually ignores reef invertebrates and corals. Clownfishes sometimes adopt various corals and algae as substitutes for host anemones.
Proaquatix specimens have been weaned to take aquarium pellets and flakes. Freshly frozen invertebrates such as ocean plankton, Mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and chopped squid will be readily accepted.
