ORA® Captive-Bred Snowflake Clownfish



Based on ORA® the popular Captive-Bred Snowflake Clownfish was originally created in the Tropical Marine Centre in the UK around 1999. Around 100 specimens were shipped to the United States, making the F1 Snowflake broodstock direct from TMC extremely rare. ORA acquired its initial pair of F1 Snowflakes in 2005 and has been working to develop an even more durable and vibrant version of this gorgeous clownfish since then. Snowflake Clownfish are popular variants of A. Ocellaris, which have significant amounts of white marks that are irregular throughout the body. Edges of white coloring are usually jagged and sharp. Each Snowflake is graded by a qualified grader to determine the proportion of white and the beauty that the stripes appear. Like their name implies there are no two identical! This species of the Pomacentridae family makes a wonderful option for almost every saltwater aquarium. The captive-bred fish have a unique benefit over species that are harvested wild since they're typically resilient and more accustomed to the conditions of the home saltwater aquarium. Thus, captive-bred fishes are an excellent choice for beginners and experienced aquarists alike. The Captive-Bred Snowflake Clownfish from ORA can be easily bred in your home aquarium. Females will be the largest of the two The two species typically stay close to one and in the aquarium. Clownfish lay eggs and deposit them on flat surfaces and protect the eggs from tankmates.

The Snowflake Clownfish diet consists of meaty foods and herbivore recipes.

Info on ORA® Captive-Bred Snowflake Clownfish Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish is a color variation of the standard Ocellaris Clownfish. Like snowflakes, none of these distinctive fish look like each other. The color of the body and general shape that make up Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish are similar to the normal Ocellaris Clownfish, but the stripe pattern is distinct. The three white stripes on the body are exaggerated, and they have different designs and shapes. The grading on Snowflake Clownfish is based on the size and amount of irregular white. In the normal class of Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish, the body stripes have irregular edges. All three body stripes can be distinguished.   Diet of ORA® Captive-Bred Snowflake Clownfish The majority of clownfish are omnivorous eaters and will consume a variety of types of food. In nature, the diet of clownfish is comprised of crustaceans (such as amphipods and copepods) as well as polychaete worms, algae, and the leftovers of eating anemones.

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.
