Snowflake Clownfish Pair

$ 99.99


This unique color morph of the popular Amphiprion ocellaris clownfish stands out with unique "snowflake" markings on its side. The Captive-Bred Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish, also known as the Snowflake Anemonefish, has an orange base, with 3 stripes of white edged in black. The white middle stripe is irregularly shaped, and covers the majority of the fishes body. Each middle stripe has a different pattern, which is why it is called the "Snowflake." This member of the Pomacentridae family is an excellent addition to almost any saltwater aquarium system.

Captive-bred fish have a unique advantage over wild-harvested species, as they are generally very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in the home aquarium. Therefore, captive-bred fishes make a great choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike.

The Captive-Bred Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish is easy to breed in the home aquarium. The females will be the largest of the pair and the two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium. Clownfish are egg layers and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface and defend the eggs from other tank mates. The eggs will normally hatch in 8-11 days depending on the water temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers followed by baby brine shrimp.

This Clownfish is an aggressive eater. It will accept most meaty foods and frozen herbivore preparations.

Approx. Size: 1"-1.25"
