Overview

The Captive-Bred Black Ice Snowflake (Amphiprion ocellaris) from ORA® is a cross between a Black Ocellaris and a Snowflake. These beautiful fish were the preliminary results of efforts to produce a Black Ocellaris with Snowflake patterns. This first generation still exhibits the yellow orange coloration of the normal Snowflake - however, it has ultra-intense black markings around the irregular white bars. 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 Ice 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 Ice Clownfish diet consists of almost any meaty food items and herbivore preparations.

Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" to 1-1/4"; Pairs: Female 1-3/4" to 2", Male 1" to 1-1/2"
