Updates coming soon on how you can have your shot at owning a Lightning Maroon Clownfish of your own, but for the moment, how about some photos fresh from the fishroom?
Looking awesome! Good job Matt!
I’m really NOT trying to rain on your accomplishment. I Swear! The success you’ve had is awesome. Particularly with all the trouble with Momma getting sick. Preserving the genes is the most important thing right now.
I just don’t like how the “lightning” on these babies look. They have large white splotches with tiny maroon specks. This doesn’t look nearly as nice as Momma’s gorgeous distinct white lines on top of a mostly maroon fish.
Do you think they’ll grow into looking more like Momma?
Craig, certainly not raining my parade at all. If you look back to see how they’ve developed you’ll see that as the fish are growing, the maroon “spots” are getting ever larger. Keep in mind that these fish are probably 1.25″…still “small”. The Lightning Maroon was orders of magnitude larger when it arrived, and even more so now.
Take a look at how the white patterns are starting to emerge and break up at the tail. Look at how ever-larger spots are showing up in the headstripe. Look at the base of the “mid-saddle” to see again how the pattern is evolving. I really think that Lightning Maroons will be one of those fish that significantly change and evolve in pattern as they grow. I could be wrong, but the observations so far suggest that no, these are going to look like Mom WHEN they reach MOM’s size.

Awesome I have been following along since the start I will definately be in line for at least 1 dare I say a pair when they are available! I will even build a system just for them!
I hear that lightning clowns make awesome christmas gifts……. The fish look unique and beautiful. Thanks for the photos.
