Northern Lights Chrysopterus to call New York home

Northern Lights Chrysopterus in her quarantine tank!

Northern Lights Clownfish shortly after acclimation into the quarantine system. That pattern color is very similar to Mistichrome paint used on Ford’s Mustang Cobras awhile back. Very cool fish!

Here is a great video of the incredible Northern Lights Amphiprion chrysopterus after being acclimated following a long trip from Walt Smith to the center of the universe, New York City.  This unusual coloration made her cost a pretty penny, but the folks at Fluid Dynamics International seized the opportunity to get these genes into a breeding program.  She’s currently at the Long Island Aquarium – Atlantis Marine World settling into her spot as the queen of the clowns, and many other chrysopteri are currently lining up to get some face time with this cutey.  The breeding effort will be managed by the fine folks at Reefgen and the LI Aquarium, so stay tuned for updates from our friends on Lawnguyland.
