Every ORA Premium Snowflake Clownfish gets a thorough evaluation by a certified grader who is able to judge the amount of white in the fish and the quality of the stripes. As the name suggests there are no two identical!

According to ORA the well-known Captive-Bred Clownfish was originally produced by the Tropical Marine Centre (TMC) in the UK in the year 1999. Around 100 species were exported ever to the United States, making the F1 Snowflake Clownfish broodstock direct from TMC extremely rare. ORA has acquired the very first set of F1 Snowflake Clownfish in 2005 and has been working to develop a stronger and more vibrant version of this stunning clownfish since then.

It is a great option for any saltwater aquarium enthusiast since captive-bred fish offer distinct benefits over species that are harvested wild. The fish that are captive-bred are tougher and are more accustomed to the conditions in a home saltwater aquarium.

The  Snowflake Clownfish is simple to breed in your home aquarium. Females will be more dominant. The fish generally stay close to each other in the aquarium. Clownfish lay eggs and deposit them on flat surfaces and protect eggs from their tank mates. The eggs usually hatch within 8 to 11 days, based on the temperature of the water. The fry need to be raised in separate aquariums with a diet consisting of rotifers and then baby brine shrimp.

A diet for this ORA fish comprises almost all meaty food items as well as herbivore recipes.
