ORA® Captive-Bred Black Ice Clownfish

Greek Name: Amphiprion ocellaris

$74.99

The ORA® Captive-Bred Black Ice Clownfish is a hybrid between an Black Ocellaris and a Snowflake. These gorgeous fish were the first results of attempts to develop the Black Ocellaris with Snowflake patterns. The first generation of fish still displays the orange-yellow coloration of the typical Snowflake however, it is marked with black ultra-intense lines on the white bars that are irregularly shaped. This part of the Pomacentridae family makes a wonderful supplement to every saltwater aquarium.

 

The captive-bred fish have a unique benefit over species that are wild harvested because they are extremely durable and are more accustomed to the conditions in home aquariums. This makes them an excellent choice for beginners and experienced aquarists.

 

The ORA® Captive-Bred Black Ice Clownfish can be easy to breed in your home aquarium. Females are the largest of the two. The two species generally stay close to each to each other in the tank. Clownfish lay eggs and deposit them on flat surfaces and guard eggs against the tank mates. The eggs usually hatch between 8 and 11 days, depending on the temperature of the water. The fry should be reared in separate aquariums with a diet consisting of rotifers and then baby brine shrimp.

 

It is believed that the Black Ice Clownfish diet consists of almost all meaty food and herbivore recipes.
