The Premium Black Snowflake (Amphiprion ocellaris) is an exceptional strain of clownfish first developed at ORA. It was meticulously created by crossing our Black Ice Snowflakes back to our line of Black Ocellaris over multiple generations. The result was a magnificent new variety of Black Ocellaris that has unique patterning in each fish. It should be noted that, like our Black Ocellaris, these fish spend their first year of life gradually darkening to their final black coloration and some individuals ultimately retain traces of orange on their faces.
Premium Black Snowflakes come in a wide array of patterns with a generous amount of white and/or black dots on their flanks. ORA also offers Black Snowflakes with less extreme patterns.
