ORA® Captive-Bred Black Ice Clownfish



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

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.
