The Mocha Storm Clownfish is a signature designer clownfish by Sea & Reef Aquaculture. This new species of Clownfish (available Jan. 2018) is a result of breeding the Black Storm Clownfish with a bright orange Ocellaris Clownfish. The Mocha Storm Clownfish is generally peaceful and very hardy. They are true omnivores as their diet includes copepods, amphipods, pellets, flakes, fortified Brine Shrimp, Mysis Shrimp and more.
Anemones are not a requirement, however they do occasionally host Bubble Tip Anemones. Ocellaris Clownfish in the wild host large and sometimes difficult to care for Anemones. This includes the Giant Carpet Anemone, Sebae Anemone as well as the Magnificent Sea Anemone.
Although they bicker from time to time, they are not nearly as aggressive as Maroon Clown species. They are a great beginner fish and the Mocha Storm Clownfish does not need a particularly large tank. They are also relatively easy to pair if added to the tank as juveniles and at the same time. The Mocha Storm is a direct descendant of the Black Storm Clownfish. Although most clownfish are territorial towards conspecifics, the Black Storm and Mocha Storm are generally peaceful with each other.
