Onyx clowns don’t it for me anymore unless they’re WC...I got spoiled with the pairs I had. Once you experience perfection, it’s hard to settle for anything else. That’s not to say there aren’t some nice tank raised ones out there.



Here's another pair I had. This one is tank raised from ORA. Notice the female Onyx has pretty good looking pelvic fins that closely resemble WC clowns. Pretty much 99% of CB clowns have shorter pelvic and dorsal fins at a minimum.

Great pairs! I have been looking for a pair of picassos or onyx and pretty much all of the captive bred ones I have come across have some sort of grotesque deformity whether it be pinched head, underdeveloped pelvic and dorsal fins or some other sort of deformity.
