    Oh shit! That's incredible. Talk about a 1 in a million chance. It's good that they will be trying to breed them in captivity.

    Now THAT is a gorgeous clownfish.

    I just hope now poachers won't start trying to catch them in the wild (laws or not, they don't care). That would suck now that there's attention to it.

    It would be sweet since it's a MAROON clown if the white section could be morphed to yellow.

    They stopped laying eggs as soon as I had the baby clown food all ready to go. That was like 2 months ago. Jerks.

    And they will probably start laying again as soon as you stop planning on them.

    I do not know if I like those new fish or not yet.

    It's not a new species, it's just a mutated version of a maroon clown. Kinda like dog breeds. Poodles and chihuahuas look very different, but they are the same species. One of the most straightforward ways to test if two animals are the same species is if they can produce viable (i.e. non-sterile) offspring. If these lightning clowns can breed with regular maroon clowns, and the baby clowns are also able to breed, then they are most likely the same species as each other.
