Darwin (Black & White) Clownfish

Sort by

The Darwin Clownfish is also known as the Black and White Clownfish, Amphiprion Ocellaris. It is named so for the intense black tone of its body, contrasted by the white bands.  As juveniles, the body tone may range from a light brown to dark brown with some orange on the face. As the clownfish matures, the brown will turn to black. It is not uncommon for some darwins to maintain a small amount of orange on the face. It may take a couple years to completely turn black. Each individual clownfish is different and will have unique coloration and patterns all its own, which is what makes designer clownfish so desirable.
