The Black Snowflake (Amphiprion ocellaris) is a new strain of clownfish. It was created by crossing our Black Ice Snowflakes back to our line of Black Ocellaris over multiple generations. The result was a spectacular new variety of Black Ocellaris that has unique patterning in each fish. It should be noted that, like our Black Ocellaris, these fish spend their first year of life gradually darkening to their final black coloration and some individuals ultimately retain traces of orange on their faces.
The Captive-Bred Clownfish has a unique advantage over wild-harvested species. For one, the Captive-Bred Clownfish is very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, it makes an excellent choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike.
The Captive-Bred Clownfish is also 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. The Captive-Bred Clownfish is an egg layer and will deposit the eggs on a flat surface and defend the eggs from other tankmates. The eggs will normally hatch in 6-11 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.
