The Captive-Bred Snow Storm Clownfish is a distinct designer clownfish that derives its lineage and namesake from a mutation that appeared during selective breeding of the clownfish. The Captive-Bred Snow Storm Clownfish demonstrates a pearly white body color with minimal dark coloration on the fins and mouth. The Snow Storm Clownfish appears very similar to a Wyoming White, but have an all-white face with fins accented with or without a brilliant platinum blue coloration. Markings on the Captive-Bred Snow Storm Clownfish are unique to each individual.
The Captive-Bred Snow Storm Clownfish does best, housed in an aquarium of at least 20 gallons or larger with plenty of live rock. It may form a symbiotic relationship with the following species of anemones; Carpet (Stichodactyla sp.), Sebae (Heteractis crispa), Bulb (Entacmaea quadricolor), or Ritteri (Heteractis magnifica). Though the Snow Storm Clownfish does not require an anemone to thrive, if you choose to house an anemone, always be sure that your aquarium and lighting system will support the needs of the host anemone before incorporating one into the aquarium.
Captive-Bred Clownfish like the Snow Storm Clownfish have advantages over wild-harvested species. For one, Captive-Bred Clownfish are very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, the Snow Storm Clownfish makes a great choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike. The Snow Storm Clownfish can be kept with a variety of other captive-bred clownfish, if introduced into the aquarium at the same time.
The Snow Storm Clownfish, like several 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.
The Snow Storm Clownfish is an egg layer and will typically deposit the eggs on a flat surface or within the proximity of the base of the host anemone and defend the eggs from other tank mates. The eggs will normally hatch in 6-11 days depending on the temperature. The fry must be reared in a separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers and eventually baby brine shrimp.
The Captive-Bred Clownfish is an omnivore, requiring both meaty foods as well as some greens in their diet. A high-quality marine flake food, rich in spirulina algae, as well as freeze-dried and frozen foods are readily accepted.
