What do you get when you combine art and science? The answer is DaVinci Ocellaris Clownfish from Sea & Reef Aquaculture. This gorgeous designer clownfish is a variant of Amphiprion ocellaris. The body color and general morphology of Sea & Reef’s DaVinci Ocellaris Clownfish are similar to that of the regular Ocellaris Clownfish, but the stripes are very different. The white stripes have been replaced with interesting curves and patterns - much like an artist painting broad strokes of white paint on a bright orange canvas. No two fish are exactly the same. The DaVinci Ocellaris Clownfish are a cross between our Wyoming White Clownfish (A. ocellaris) and Ocellaris Clownfish (also A. ocellaris).

 

You might ask why we named this beautiful morph "DaVinci Ocellaris Clownfish". Well the hobby already have a Picasso Clownfish (A. percula) named after the famous painter Pablo Picasso. The name DaVinci was inspired by the famous Italian renaissance painter, scientist, architect, and pioneer Leonardo da Vinci. The DaVinci Ocellaris Clownfish combine the beauty of art and science.   

 

Temperament & Captive Care

The temperament and captive care requirements for DaVinci Ocellaris Clownfish are very similar to that of the regular Ocellaris Clownfish. It is relatively peaceful and hardy. They thrive in saltwater aquariums with or without an anemone present.

 

Feeding

Most clownfish are omnivorous feeders, meaning that they will consume a variety of different food types. In nature the diet of clownfish consists of crustaceans (such as copepods and amphipods), algae, polychaete worms, and leftovers from the anemone’s meal. Our captive bred fish are conditioned to eat a variety of aquarium diets including pellets, flake food, frozen Mysis shrimp, and frozen brine shrimp.

 

Aquarium Host Anemones

DaVinci Ocellaris Clownfish will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones. As a reference, the natural host anemones of the regular Ocellaris Clownfish are Magnificent Sea Anemone (Heteractis magnifica), Giant Carpet Sea Anemone (Stichodactyla gigantean) and Merten's Carpet Sea Anemone (Stichodactyla mertensii).
