Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish, Captive-Bred



This distinctive color morph of the famous Amphiprion Ocellaris clownfish is distinguished by its unique "snowflake" design on its back. The Captive-Bred Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish, sometimes referred to by the name of Snowflake Anemonefish, has an orange base, and 3 stripes of white trimmed in black. The middle stripe of white is shaped in a different way and encompasses the majority of the fish's body. Each middle stripe features unique patterning this is the reason it's called the "Snowflake." This part of the Pomacentridae family is a great option for almost every saltwater aquarium. The captive-bred fish have a unique benefit over species that are harvested wild since they're typically robust and are more comfortable with conditions that are typical of an aquarium. Thus, captive-bred fishes are the perfect choice for newbies and experienced aquarists alike. The Captive-Bred Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish is very easy to breed in your aquarium at home. Females are the biggest of the pair, as the pair generally stay close to each other in the aquarium. Clownfish lay eggs and deposit them on flat surfaces and guard the eggs against other tankmates. The eggs usually hatch between 8 and 11 days, depending on the temperature of the water. The fry should be raised in a separate tank with a diet consisting of Rotifers, followed by brine baby shrimp. This Clownfish is an aggressive eater. It can eat meaty food and frozen herbivore fish foods. Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" to 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.
