The Caramel Clownfish is a variation of the Darwin Clownfish or Black and White Clownfish, Amphiprion Ocellaris. The Dark Banded Caramel Clownfish is named so for the caramel to light brown color of the body which fades into orange on its underbelly and fins. The black outline around the white bands on its body are bold and much darker than that of a common Caramel. It is a noticeable difference, which is why we chose to classify them into their own category. Some breeders may refer to these as Sunrise Mocha. As juveniles, the body tone may range from a light brown to caramel color and may darken, but will never truly reach the deep tones of a Darwin. The face, fins, and under body may remain orange, but only time will reveal its true tones. 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.
