Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Zuchtformen 03 are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Zuchtformen 03, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Zuchtformen 03, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Info from the Sea and Reef Website :-)

Premium Snowflake Ocellaris is a color variation of the regular Ocellaris Clownfish. Just like those super cooled droplets of water called snowflakes, no two of these unique fish look alike. The body color and general morphology of Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish is similar to the regular Ocellaris Clownfish, but the stripe pattern is very different. The three white body stripes are exaggerated and have irregular shapes and patterns. Sea & Reef Aquaculture offers three different grades of Snowflake ocellaris Clownfish: Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish, Premium Snowflake ocellaris Clownfish and Ultra Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish. Grading of Snowflake Clownfish is based on the amount and shape of the white markings. Our Premium Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish have more white markings than our regular Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish and its head stripe and second stripe are joined on both sides of the body.

Temperament & Captive Care
The temperament and captive care requirements for Snowflake Ocellaris 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
Premium Snowflake Ocellaris 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).

Bei einigen unserer Zuchtpaare, nun schon in zweiter Generation, haben wir gelegentlich Jungtiere mit einer Verbindung der ersten und zweiten Mittelbinde. Es sind nur ca 5 von 100.
Jungtiere diesr Form, welche wir uns für die weitere Zucht behielten, lassen auch nicht mehr Tiere hiervon entstehen.
