On very rare occassions, our Clarkii Broodstock will produce a small batch of what we call Pearl-Eye Clarkiis. These exquisite fish have Pearly-Blue eye spots that may cover either a portion or all of the superior area of the iris. Even fewer of these beauties show extra markings of white around their head bar. We’re not sure what causes the eye spots, but our scientists believe it may be caused by a recessive gene that rarely manifests itself. We’ve noticed that these unique spots are produced by both Pearl-Eye Clarkii and regular Clarkii broodstock. Due to their rarity, this variety of Clarkii is not always available from ORA.
