Black Snowflake (Amphiprion ocellaris)
Black Snowflakes are a variation from the normal Snowflake with a black body. When compared to common Ocellaris, Snowflakes have exaggerated barring with unique patterns. Despite these intriguing patterns, Snowflakes still have three separate and distinct white bands.
Like all clownfishes, Amphiprion ocellaris is a sequential hermaphrodite. The largest individual present will exert dominance and become reproductively female. The next largest fish will become reproductively male. Remaining smaller individuals are usually tolerated but will not be reproductively active.
Usually ignores reef invertebrates and corals. Clownfishes sometimes adopt various corals and algae as substitutes for host anemones.
Proaquatix specimens have been weaned to take aquarium pellets and flakes. Freshly frozen invertebrates such as ocean plankton, Mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and chopped squid will be readily accepted.
