The Chocolate Mocha is a variation of the Darwin Clownfish or Black and White Clownfish, Amphiprion Ocellaris. The Midnight Mocha Clownfish is named so for the thick black bars that outline the white bands on its body, which are not present on a common Chocolate Mocha. Some breeders may refer to these as Mocha Caramel or Chocolate Caramel. As juveniles, the body tone may range from a light brown to caramel color and will darken over time to almost black, 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.
* All of our clownfish come with an adoption certificate.
- Minimum tank size: 20 gallons
- Maximum growth size: 4 inches
- 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.
BOND MY PAIR: If you purchase 2 or more fish (must be in sets, 2,4,6,8, etc.) you have the option to select "Bond My Pair" and we will place your pair in a single tank setup for 7-14 days and allow them to bond. As soon as your pair establishes dominance and one is clearly submitting to the other, the pair are sleeping and swimming together, we will send you a confirmation video and then ship your fish to you. We are offering this as a free service right now as a courtesy to our customers. If you order more than one pair, all pairs will be held until all clownfish are ready to ship. We will not split the order up and ship as they bond, as the cost of shipping would be too great. If you want the pairs bonded on a pair by pair basis, then you will have to create an order for each pair and pay separate shipping charges.

Shipping: All customers outside of our 50 mile radius can still own one of our clownfish. Fed Ex Overnight delivery is available within the US except for states with livestock restriction such as Hawaii. We do not ship during the months of December-February as the risk to the fish is too great during these winter months.
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.
