Premium Snowflake (Amphiprion ocellaris)
When compared to common Ocellaris, Snowflakes have exaggerated barring with unique patterns. Our Premium Snowflakes have enough barring so that the first and second bars are merged on BOTH sides of the fish.
This variant of Ocellaris is rarely found in the wild.
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.
