Longfin Black Ice Clownfish, Captive-Bred



The Captive-Bred Longfin Black Ice Clownfish is a relatively new species of clownfish that was developed through selective breeding. Apart from the lengthy flowing fins, they feature an orange base coloration featuring three stripes that are edged in black, and the middle stripe exhibiting an irregular shape. The Captive-Bred Longfin's Black Ice Snowflake Clownfish shows more intense, dark coloration of the body than Black Ice Ocellaris. This species of the Pomacentridae family is a great option for almost every saltwater aquarium. The captive-bred fish have a unique benefit over species that are wild harvested since they're extremely hardy and more used to the conditions in home aquariums. Thus, they are an excellent choice for beginners and experienced aquarists. The Captive-Bred Longfin Black Ice is very easy to breed in your aquarium at home. Females are the largest of the two as the pair typically stay close to one another in the tank. Clownfish lay eggs and deposit them on flat surfaces and guard eggs against tankmates. The eggs usually hatch within 8 to 11 days, based on the temperature of the water. The fry should be raised in a separate tank eating Rotifers, followed by baby brine shrimp. This Clownfish is a ferocious eater. It is tolerant of meaty food items and frozen herbivore dishes. Approximate purchase size 1" to 2"

Longfin Black Ice Clownfish Information The majority of longfin clownfish display jagged stiff fins. Utilizing the genetics of a different strain has created an even and soft flowing longfin. The main difference between the standard Longfin as well as the Premium Longfin is that the Premium Longfin will sport more white markings than the standard Black Ice Clownfish, and their head stripe, as well as the second stripe, are joined to both sides of the body. The length of the fins grows as the fish gets older and matures, which usually happens between 8 and 12 months. The temperament and the care requirements are similar to that of the regular ocellaris clownfish. They are tough and relatively tranquil fish that can grow to an average size of 4 inches.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
