Maine Blizzard Clownfish

SKU: AO9584Categories: Saltwater Fish

The Captive-Bred Maine Blizzard Clownfish is an eye-catching “designer” variant that adds a unique touch to any aquarium. This stunning clownfish color morph was created through selective breeding of Picasso Clownfish. The name “Maine Blizzard” was inspired by the blinding white snowstorms of New England’s Nor’easter storms, which matches the predominantly snowy-white body of the fish. It shares similarities in appearance to the Platinum Clownfish, Wyoming White, and Flurry variants, but features orange coloration on its fins and nose, and less black. As the fish matures, more black will develop. This clownfish variant is peaceful and hardy, with a typical Percula Clownfish temperament. As a captive-bred fish, it is accustomed to eating a variety of aquarium diets, including pellets, flake food, frozen Mysis shrimp, and frozen Brine shrimp. The Maine Blizzard is an excellent choice for both novice and experienced aquarists, and will thrive in an aquarium with or without an anemone present. Breeding captive-bred clownfish is easy and can be done in the home aquarium. The females are typically larger than the males, and the pair usually stays close to each other. Clownfish are egg-layers and will deposit their eggs on a flat surface, fiercely defending them from other tank mates. The eggs will usually hatch in 8-11 days, depending on the water temperature, and the fry must be raised in a separate tank and fed rotifers, followed by baby brine shrimp. The Captive-Bred Maine Blizzard Clownfish has a hearty appetite and will readily accept most meaty foods and frozen herbivore preparations.
