Note that some of these guys have potential to become Phantoms. Its difficult to assess exactly what they will become. The browns will turn darker to black, depending on the individual fish. You won't know until he/she fully matures.
The Black Ice Mocha Clownfish is part of the Amphiprion Ocellaris family. The Black Ice Mocha Clownfish is named so for the intense black outline around the white snowflake pattern bands on its body and fins, which are not present on a common Snowflake. It also has the same brown body tone of a mocha clownfish, which will darken with age. As juveniles, the snowflake pattern is not as refined as an adult's pattern. However, as it grows and matures the edges take shape and becomes something truly unique. Each individual clownfish is different and will have unique coloration and patterns all its own, which is what makes designer clownfish so desirable.

Foods we feed: Flakes, pellets, frozen cyclops, spirulina, occasionally brine shrimp. A variety is best for optimum health.
How often to feed: As an inhabitant in a display tank 1-2 twice a day will suffice. For an adult clownfish intent on breeding, feed 4-5 times a day in smaller portions.
Temperament: Peaceful if it does not have a mate. If you have a pair, they may fight each other if not bonded, or if they are bonded they will become aggressive if they are breeding. Some clownfish will guard an anemone and be aggressive towards anything that comes near it. Each individual fish is different and will behave according to their own personality.
Shipping: Shipping has been closed for the season. We offer local pickup only.
DOA: There is no risk of DOA (Dead on Arrival) for Free Local Delivery. There is, however, risk involved with Overnight Shipping. Should your clownfish parish during travel, we will issue a store credit for the deceased fish. Shipping cost is not included in the credit, as services are rendered at the time of delivery. The customer must provide picture proof of the deceased fish within two hours of delivery in the unopened bag. If the fish is removed from the bag, the guarantee is voided. It is within our rights to request a return of the deceased fish if we deem necessary before a credit is issued (i.e. pictures are not clear or a discrepancy occurs). We only guarantee live arrival, as the tank environment and conditions of the customer are unknown. The customer must be home to accept the delivery on the designated delivery day or another person capable of receiving the fish and acclimating it. We will set up a delivery day prior to the shipment of the fish so the customer is prepared in advance.
