Our Flurry Clownfish is an attractive designer clownfish that is a cross between our Wyoming White Clownfish (A.ocellaris) and our Ultra Snowflake Ocellaris (also A. ocellaris). They are similar to our Frostbite Clownfish, but our flurry Clownfish are either pure white or have only a few black spots. They have more orange coloration in the fins compared to Wyoming Whites that will develop all black fins. Also, many of our Flurry Clownfish have pearly eyes. The temperament and captive care requirements for Flurry 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. Clownfish do not require host anemones to survive or thrive. However, in most cases they will readily accept them. Flurry Clownfish will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones. 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).
