While perusing some of our old videos we came across a feature of the odd clownfish pair that spawned the now-infamous Black Photon Clownfish strain. While visiting Dr. Joshi more than six years ago, we had the chance to meet the Onyx Percula and Black Ocellaris clownfish that were obtained as a pair in Ft. Collins Colorado.
Back then the beautiful pair was quite the odd couple and had not yet spawned the entire race of the Black Photon Clownfish which are now widely available throughout the U.S. The Black Photon Clownfish has even spawned other side strains such as the snowflake black photons and various permutations of the unusual and well-documented hybrid cross.
It was impossible to know in the Spring of 2008 that Sanjay’s unlikely pair from our home state of Colorado would be the parents of such a massive population of aquarium fish.
