Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish is a color variation of the regular Ocellaris Clownfish. Just like those super cooled droplets of water called snowflakes, no two of these unique fish look alike. The body color and general morphology of Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish are similar to the regular Ocellaris Clownfish, but the stripe pattern is very different. The three white body stripes are exaggerated and have irregular shapes and patterns. Sea & Reef Aquaculture offer three different grades of Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish; Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish, Premium Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish and Ultra Ocellaris Clownfish. Grading of Snowflake Clownfish is based on the amount and shape of the white markings. In the regular grade of Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish the body stripes will have irregular edges and all three body stripes are distinguishable.
Temperament & Captive Care
The temperament and captive care requirements for Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish are very similar to that of the regular Ocellaris Clownfish. They are relatively peaceful and hardy. They thrive in saltwater aquariums with or without an anemone present.
Most clownfish are omnivorous feeders, meaning that they will consume a variety of different food types. In nature the diet of clownfish consists of crustaceans (such as copepods and amphipods), algae, polychaete worms, and leftovers from the anemone’s meal. Our captive bred fish are conditioned to eat a variety of aquarium diets including pellets, flake food, frozen Mysis shrimp, and frozen brine shrimp.
Aquarium Host Anemones
Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones and many hobbyists keep snowflake ocellaris clownfish with the popular and hardy Bubble Tip Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor). As a reference the natural host anemones of the regular ocellaris clownfish are Magnificent Sea Anemone (Heteractis magnifica), Giant Carpet Sea Anemone (Stichodactyla gigantean) and Merten's Carpet Sea Anemone (Stichodactyla mertensii).
