ORA® Captive-Bred Premium Black Snowflake Clownfish



The ORA® Captive-Bred Black Premium Snowflake Clownfish is an entirely new species of clownfish that was first created at ORA. It was created through cross-breeding Black Ice Snowflake Clownfish with Black Ocellaris Clownfish over multiple generations. The result is an amazing new species that is Black Ocellaris that has unique patterns in every fish.  ORA Premium Black Snowflake Clownfish exhibits extreme patterns in white, which gives it an impressive appearance. It is important to note that, just like other Black Ocellaris, the ORA Premium Black Snowflake Clownfish will spend the first year of its life gradually darkening before reaching its final black shade and some individuals may have traces of orange left in their face. The fish is a great choice for nearly every saltwater aquarium owner as captive-bred fish possess a distinct advantage over the wild caught species. Fish that are captive-bred are extremely durable and more comfortable with the conditions that are common in aquariums at home. This ORA® Clandestine-Bred Black Premium Snowflake can be easily bred in your own aquarium. Females are the bigger of the two while the fish typically stay close to one another in the aquarium. Clownfish are egg-laying fish that deposit eggs on flat surfaces and protect them from any tankmates. The eggs are usually born within 8 to 11 days, based on the temperature of the water. The fry need to be raised in a separate tank eating rotifers and then baby brine shrimp. Diet of the ORA® Captive-Bred Premium Black Snowflake Clownfish is comprised of almost all meaty food items as well as herbivore recipes. Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" to 1-1/4"

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.
