Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Zuchtformen 54 are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Zuchtformen 54, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Zuchtformen 54, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Ultra 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 are similar to the regular ocellaris clownfish, but the stripe pattern is very different. The 3 white body stripped are exaggerated and have irregular shapes and patterns. Sea & Reef Aquaculture offer 3 different grades of Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish; Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish, Premium Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish and Ultra Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish. Grading of Snowflake Ocellaris clownfish is based on the amount and shape of the white markings. Our Ultra Snowflake 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 Ultra Snowflake Ocellaris Clownfish are very similar to that of the regular Ocellaris Clownfish. They are 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
The Ultra Snowflake Ocellaris 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).
