Frostbite (Amphiprion ocellaris)
Our Frostbite clownfish was developed by crossing the Wyoming White Ocellaris with different Snowflake Ocellaris variants. They are mostly white with fins that often darken with age. Frostbites also have distinct black spots or blotches. Our standard grade Frostbite clownfish will have at least 7 black spots and/or blotches.
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.
