Sea and Reef has just released the 11th designer longfin clownfish. The new fish is a longfin version of the very popular Snow Storm Clownfish. As Manny aquarists know, longfin clownfish are not new to the hobby, but Sea & Reef’s new Longfin Clownfish have a much different look to them. Their longfin clownfish have long flowing fins with a rounded, more even outlines. This sets them apart from the typical longfin strain that display jagged, stiff fins with uneven edges often observed from other clownfish breeders. The reason for the different look of Sea & Reef’s longfin clownfish is due to different genetics. It was bound to happen that the Storm Clownfish gene and the Longfin gene were to meet at some point.

In yesterday’s post I showed some coral heads full of mainly juvenile Chromis viridis, and I mentioned how hard they were to shoot. In this series of images I was lucky enough to have a macro lens fitted to my camera and I was able to observe some interesting...
In this video I go over some tips on frag system design that I picked up over the years coral farming at Tidal Gardens. Hopefully these tips are helpful regardless of what stage you are in propagating corals whether it is a small frag tank or a full blown commercial facility. #tidalgardens #coral #reeftank Photo/Video: Canon C200 Canon 5Ds R - https://amzn.to/33qklaf Canon 100mm Macro - https://amzn.to/33pbUvG Canon 100mm IS Macro L - https://amzn.to/3guFh3h Canon EF MP-E 65mm f/2.8 macro - https://amzn.to/3gz9HBO Camera Stabilization: Freefly Movi Phone Stabilizer - https://amzn.to/2DDrzwr Freefly Movi Pro Stabilizer - https://amzn.to/31oO7to Edelkrone SliderONE - https://amzn.to/39V8Ici Edelkrone HeadONE - https://amzn.to/2EQfu7X Audio: Shure SM7B - https://amzn.to/2DUQPP1 Sennheiser 416 - https://amzn.to/3ajHpIT Sennheiser AVX Lavalier - https://amzn.to/33Ud4iU Focusrite Scarlet 18i8 - https://amzn.to/30RkBx8 Cloudlifter CL-1 - https://amzn.to/2XY4En8 Copyright Information: This video was shot and edited by Tidal Gardens.

By selective breeding, Sea and Reef has managed to add the longfin gene to their popular Midnight Lightning Clownfish. This is good news for those that are into designer clownfish and it brings the total up to eight longfin strains for the Sea & Reef team. The Midnight Longfin clownfish is a black and white fish with a jagged head stripe and a lightning bolt pattern between the first and the second dorsal fin. The patterns can vary from one fish to another but the majority of the offspring possess the aforementioned color pattern. Early juvenile fish start out more brown than black. As the fish ages and they grow larger, the brownish color darkens to a nice midnight black coloration that contrasts nicely with the “white
