Over the past several years, we’ve seen some tremendous patterns and aberrations showing up both capyive-bred and wild-caught clownfish, with most of those weird characteristics showing in the Percula (Amphiprion percula) and Ocellaris (A. ocellaris) species. Fortunately, that trend has shifted to other clownfish species in recent years, with maroon clownfish getting in on the action quite a bit. The latest oddball clown to find its way into the trade is this unique “Picasso” maroon clownfish (Premnas biaculeatus) from the gang at iBluewater, who have imported plenty of other oddball clowns in recent memory. According to iBluewater, this male Picasso maroon was collected in the same area as the world famous Lightning Maroon Clownfish.
