One-in-a-million mutated MochaVinci Clownfish - now broodstock fish for new strain.
Instead of the golden coloration and swirly patterns of the MochaVincis, this single fish displayed an exaggerated white pattern that had more straight lines. Furthermore, this fish turned jet-black very early on.
Initially called it the Black DaVinci Clownfish, Sea and Reef Agriculture believed they had just bypassed several generations of breeding more black into the MochaVinci line.The mutated MochaVinci clownfish was paired up with a Black Ocellaris Clownfish with the goal of creating offspring with a pattern similar to its unusual parent. During the brutal cold Maine winter of 2015 the pair laid their first nest of eggs, and shortly after Sea and Reef Agriculture raised the offspring.
It quickly became apparent that the offspring looked very different from the mutated MochaVinci Clownfish. The offspring displayed an even more exaggerated white body pattern with an almost entirely full-white face mask.
The temperament and captive care requirements this new designer Ocellaris Clownfish strain are very similar to that of the regular Ocellaris clownfish. It is a relatively peaceful and hardy clownfish. They thrive in saltwater aquariums with or without an anemone present.
Most clownfish are omnivorous feeders, meaning that they will consume a variety of different food types. In nature the diet of clownfish consists of crustaceans (such as copepods and amphipods), algae, polychaete worms, and leftovers from the anemone’s meal. Our captive bred fish are conditioned to eat a variety of aquarium diets including pellets, flake food, frozen Mysis shrimp, and frozen brine shrimp.
This new designer clownfish will readily accept a wide variety of host anemones and many hobbyists keep it with the popular and hardy Bubble Tip Anemone.
