The Captive-Bred Frostbite Clownfish sports beautiful and
distinct features. The Frostbite was created by blending the best traits of the
popular Captive-Bred Snowflake Clownfish and the Captive-Bred Gladiator
Clownfish. The Frostbite is decorated with black trim around brightly colored
orange faces and tails. As they mature, they develop an electric blue hue
around the borders of their white flanks. These stunning fish also feature
white spots, or ?buckshot? throughout their bodies. This feature is widely
variable from fish to fish, so no two are alike.
Captive-bred fish have a unique advantage over
wild-harvested species, as they are generally very hardy and more accustomed to
conditions found in the home aquarium. Therefore, captive-bred fishes make an
excellent choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike.
The Captive-Bred Frostbite Clownfish is easy to breed in
the home aquarium. Clownfish are egg layers and will deposit the eggs on a flat
surface and defend the eggs from other tank mates. The eggs will normally hatch
in 6-11 days depending on the water temperature. The fry must be reared in a
separate aquarium on a diet of rotifers followed by baby brine shrimp.
This Clownfish is an aggressive eater. It will accept
most meaty foods and frozen herbivore preparations.
