Wow, mine are still very very orange. (Ignore the second picture - I was going to use this as a shutter speed comparison). This is the smaller one - the larger one looks to be getting a little darker.

For reference, here is the same fish the day I got it in February, about a month and a half ago:

Thanks for posting the pics.

Its interesting that they are developing the black coloration at such a different pace.

I just a few pics, taken today, of the three from the same batch that I threw into my 5G tank a few months ago. They are all the same age, in the same environment and yet have different amounts of black in them so far. These fish are only 7 months old, and its well known for Onxy percs to take more than a year to get all their black color.

this one was almost all orange up until a few weeks ago. Its a loner and the ones that have paired up chase it away.

this is the larger of the pair, and will be the female eventually. She has not developed the same amount of black as the other 2.

this is the blackest one I have so far. The male of the pair.

Here is a bunch of them at 4.5 months old.

Hi, what's the difference between an onyx clownfish in comparison to the black clownfishes that I see at my lfs? Are they one of the same?

The first picture what an Onyx would look like. It is a Percula species of clownfish. The 2nd is a black Ocellaris.

They are both different species.

Im sorry I have zero photo skills.

So I took some video of " The Pandi" as we now call them. 1/2 Panda and 1/2 Jedi since they are a hybred..of coarse:duh:

These fish are great and the 2x250w radium I think have tanned them up!
