ORA’s team of biologists have been spawning and rearing Amphiprion rubrocinctus for approximately 15 years. Or at least we thought. . .
Be sure to check out our newest fish, the Black Cardinal (Apogonichthyoides melas). If you are stopping by the Global Pet Expo in Orlando this week you can stop by and see some in our display tanks. Product Page
It is rare to find an entire genera of reef fishes extremely well-suited to live in an aquarium, but Devilfish (Assessor spp.) make great aquarium residents for several reasons. Their maximum length of 3 to 4” makes them suitable for most sizes of aquariums. They aren’t overly aggressive with other species or conspecifics and can […]
Many years ago, ORA’s marine biologists wondered what would happen if they crossed two of ORA’s most popular Goby species: the Yellowline goby (Elacatinus figaro) and Neon goby (E. oceanops). You can see from the photo that the results were spectacular. These hybrids have a stripe coloration that starts off as a yellow hue near the head and transitions like […]
Maroon Clownfish, Premnas biaculeatus, are most commonly encountered in two varieties – the Gold Stripe and the White Stripe. ORA has been breeding Maroon clowns for 16 years and during that time most of our efforts have focused on Gold Stripe Maroons from Sumatra because they are considered to be the most attractive and desirable […]
ORA has added another species to its list of captive bred Marine Ornamentals, McCulloch’s Clownfish (Amphiprion mccullochi). This success story is a little different from others we have shared in the past. This time we didn’t actually breed the fish but we did raise the larvae.
*** UPDATE *** Available now! Check out the ORA Black Snowflake product page for more pictures. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you were to breed a Black Ocellaris and a Snowflake Ocellaris together? We did and we wound up producing what became known as the Black Ice Snowflake. Our goal in crossing […]
It’s not often that we get the opportunity to raise a new invertebrate species but this one just fell into our lap. The Variegated Sea Urchin (Lytechinus variegates) is the 85th species that we have added to our ever expanding list of captive breeding accomplishments. Yes, you read that right, we really have raised 85 different […]
