The Maine Blizzard Clownfish Captive-Bred provides a stunning designer clownfish color change for your aquarium! Through selective breeding, Picasso Clownfish created this gorgeous variation. The name for this white, snowy clownfish was derived from the storms in New England known for their white snowstorms that blind you. It is known as the Maine Blizzard, with its bright white body, shares a similar design to Platinum Clownfish, the Wyoming White and the Flurry however, it is characterized by an orange coloring on its fins and the nose. It also has less black than other varieties. When the species matures, more black will begin to appear.

This Captive-Bred Maine Blizzard Clownfish is tranquil and tough and has a personality typical that of Percula Clownfish. Since it is bred in captivity, it is used to taking a variety of aquarium diets like pellets, flake foods frozen Mysis shrimp along with frozen Brine shrimp. It is a great option for beginners and experienced aquarists too. Maine Blizzard will thrive in your aquarium, whether or not there is anemone present.

Captive-Bred Clownfish can be easily bred in your aquarium. Females are the most massive of the pair, as the pair generally stay close to each other in the aquarium. Clownfish lay eggs on flat surfaces and guard the eggs against other tankmates. The eggs usually hatch within 8 to 11 days, based on the temperature of the water. The fry should be raised in separate tanks eating rotifers and then baby brine shrimp.

This Captive-Bred Maine Blizzard Clownfish has an appetite for meat and is able to eat most meaty food items and frozen herbivore dishes.
