Remarks: The Midnight Lightning Ocellaris Clownfish is the results of breeding SR's Midnight Clownfish with their Phantom Clownfish. The result is a mostly black clownfish with lightning bolt pattern between their 1st and 2'nd dorsal fin. Most Midnight Lightning Clownfish have a white head stripe with a jagged snowflake-like pattern. Some fish have no third stripe and some fish have another lightning bolt marking in place of a third stripe. Belonging to the Ocellaris species it is a robust and peaceful fish that will do well in most community tanks. Midnight Lightning Clownfish are brownish when they are very early juvenile and then develop their deep black coloration as they grow and mature. Some of the fish are jet black around 1 ¾”. The brown markings around their face are the last part to turn black. They are just gorgeous and excellent reef fish.
