It is believed that the Captive-Bred Snow Onyx and Extreme Snow Onyx are hybrid crosses between onyx Onyx Percula clownfish (Amphriprion percula) and the Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish (Amphriprion ocellaris). These fish are orange, with irregularly shaped white patches which are highlighted with black. Also, you will notice subtle blue highlights in these beautiful hybrid fish. This species of the Pomacentridae family makes a wonderful choice for any 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 conditions that are typical of the home aquarium. So, captive-bred fishes are an excellent addition for newbies and experienced aquarists alike.

The Captive-Bred Snow Onyx as well as the Extreme Snow Onyx Clownfish is easily bred in the aquarium of your home. Females are the most massive of the pair and generally stay close to each to each other in the aquarium. Clownfish lay eggs and deposit them on flat surfaces and guard the eggs from tankmates. The eggs usually hatch between 8 and 11 days, depending on the temperature of the water. The fry needs to be raised in a separate aquarium eating a diet of rotifers, followed by baby brine shrimp.

This Clownfish is a very good eater. It is tolerant of meaty and frozen herbivore dishes.

Snow Onyx Clownfish Information

This Snow Onyx Clown is a hybrid cross between an “Onyx” A. percula and a “Snowflake” A. ocellaris. The parents of the original fish were contacted by our supplier through a friend who informed them about the distinct patterns that their offspring had. The fish is distinguished by huge white areas bordered by dark orange and black. There are also some blue flecks right on the edges between the orange and white pattern.
