Overview

The Captive-Bred Black Ice Ocellaris Clownfish is a relatively new strain of clownfish developed from breeding a Black Ocellaris Clownfish with a Snowflake Ocellaris clownfish. These fishes have an orange base coloration, with three white stripes edged in black, with the center stripe having an irregular shape. The Captive-Bred Blacker Ice Ocellaris Clownfish displays a more intense, blacker coloration in the body than the standard Black Ice Ocellaris. 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 Captive-Bred Black Ice Ocellaris 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.

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

Customer Testimonials

Dawn K Greenfield , WI
I purchased a pair and I find them very interesting. I have had a saltwater tank for over 8 years. Most of the time with a clown. My new male is very interested in my bubble anomie but dancing close and the anomie moving around to get close. This is my first high breed pair. They were not around the last time I bought clown fish. They are the stars in my tank all watch them dance.
