The Black Ice Clownfish is a unique cross between our Premium Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish and our ultra-black Darwin Ocellaris Clownfish. Like the Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish, the Black Ice Clownfish has three white body stripes that are exaggerated and have irregular shapes and patterns. The body color is a beautiful orange- brown. The color will darken with maturity. No two fish are the same and this designer clownfish has become increasingly popular for its distinctiveness. Sea & Reef Aquaculture offer 3 different grades of Black Ice Clownfish based on the amount and shape of the white markings: Black Ice Clownfish, Premium Black Ice Clownfish and Ultra Black Ice Clownfish. Our Ultra Black Ice Ocellaris Clownfish have the most white and all three stripes are joined on both side of the body.
Temperament & Captive Care
The temperament and captive care requirements for the Black Ice Clownfish are very similar to that of the regular Ocellaris Clownfish. It is 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
Black Ice Clownfish will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones and many hobbyists keep them 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).
