The Captive-Bred Black Snowflake Phantom Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) is a new, “designer” variety of clownfish. It was developed by crossing a Black Ice Snowflake Clownfish with a Black Ocellaris Clownfish over multiple generations. Their body shapes and size is very similar to a regular Ocellaris Clownfish, but the banding is quite different.
The Black Snowflake Phantom Clownfish like many other captive-bred clownfish, can be bred in the home aquarium with relative ease and is one of the most common “starter” fish for saltwater breeders. The female will be the larger of the pair, and two fish will usually stay close to each other in the aquarium.
