overview

The Captive-Bred Black Snowflake (Amphiprion ocellaris) is a new strain of clownfish first developed at ORA®. It was created by crossing a Black Ice Snowflake back to their line of Black Ocellaris over multiple generations. The result was a spectacular new variety of Black Ocellaris that has unique patterning in each fish. Black Snowflakes come in a wide array of patterns with varying degrees of white. Premium Black Snowflakes will have more extreme patterns.

It should be noted that, like the 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.

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 very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, it makes a great choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike.

The Black Snowflake 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.

The Black Snowflake Clownfish diet consists of almost any meaty food items and herbivore preparations.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 3/4" to 1-1/4"; Large: 2" to 3"
