    What type of clown fish do I have?

    The pet store doesn't have another with this coloration. :(

    He started off a bit more orange.

    I'll want to get him/her a girlfriend/boyfriend and a nennie (6 months from now), and I don't want to mess up and get the wrong kind.

    Looks like a black occellaris.
    At that size, and being alone in the tank, it will be a female.

    Just get a clown fish smaller than the one you have, not the same size (they may fight) the larger will always be the female, your clam may suffer in the long run with the clown in it all the time. Try to get an anemone sooner rather than later, you may find she does not want to go in the new addition, if she has got too attached to the clam. Anita

    Ok, well, one of these days I'll find another, and maybe she will turn into a he. :)

    All clownfish are born male and the dominant one becomes female. Once female, it cant become male again.
