Ice Storm Clownfish.
Our Ice Storm Clownfish is the next generation Snow Storm Clownfish. The classic Snow Storm Clownfish was created by breeding one of our Black Storm Clownfish with one of our Phantom Clownfish, which resulted in a white fish with black eyes, fins and lips. The Ice Storm Clownfish was created by breeding one of our Mocha Storm Clownfish with a Black Ice Clownfish. Basically this is another combination of Black Storm genetics with snowflake genetics. The Ice Storm Clownfish is a white clownfish, but its eyes and base of most fins are an orange-brown coloration, which separate it from the Snow Storm Clownfish. We named it Ice Storm Clownfish due to its origin from a Black Ice and a Mocha Storm Clownfish. This Sea & Reef signature strain was released on April 24, 2020.
Temperament & Captive Care
The temperament and captive care requirements this new designer Ocellaris Clownfish strain are very similar to that of the regular Ocellaris clownfish. It is a relatively peaceful and hardy clownfish. 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
This new designer clownfish will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones and many hobbyists keep it 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), Sebae Anemone (Heteractis crispa), and Giant Carpet Anemone (Stichodactyla gigantea).
