Overview

The Captive-Bred Longfin Black Ice Clownfish is a relatively new strain of clownfish developed from selective breeding. Aside from long flowing fins, 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 Longfin Black Ice Snowflake 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 Longfin Black Ice 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.
