Snow Storm Clownfish, Amphiprion ocellaris
Our Snow Storm Clownfish is our newest strain based on our Black Storm Clownfish. We created the Snow Storm Clownfish by breeding one of our Black Storm Clownfish with one of our Phantom Clownfish. The result is a beautiful white fish with Black eyes, fins and lips. The all white and black face makes the Snow Storm Clownfish very distinct from some of our other white morphs like the Wyoming White Clownfish.
Interestingly, the offspring from the Black Storm x Phantom pairing produced a mixture of phenotypes, including Snow Storm Clownfish, Black Storm Clownfish, Phantom Clownfish and Black and White Ocellaris (Darwin) Clownfish.
Temperament & Captive Care
The temperament and captive care requirements this new designer Ocellaris Clownfish strain are very similar to that of the regular Ocellaris clownfish. It is a relatively peaceful and hardy clownfish. They thrive in saltwater aquariums with or without an anemone present.
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
This new designer clownfish will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones and many hobbyists keep it with the popular and hardy Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor) . As a reference the natural host anemones of the regular ocellaris clownfish are Magnificent Sea Anemone (Heteractis magnifica), Sebae Anemone (Heteractis crispa), and Giant Carpet Anemone (Stichodactyla gigantea).
