Have you ever wondered how clownfish breeders get all of those strange color morphs and patterns? I mean, we’ve got Picassos, Snowflakes, Platinums, Goldflakes, misbar, naked, black clowns…you name it. And the morphs are only going to increase with time. It can be a bit overwhelming at times, especially when it comes to tracking all of the lineages. Thankfully, Sustainable Aquatics is going to help put it all into perspective.
The aquaculture company, which garnered recent notoriety for their longfin clownfish, has introduced an amazing high-resolution 2′ by 3′ poster that shows off an astounding 86 different types of captive-bred clownfish, all arranged in specific developmental paths. If you want to find out how the Platinum traits get passed on, just look them up. There are even hybrid types on the post too. It is a rather extensive look at the different clowns in the hobby and we appreciate the clarity it gives when keeping tabs on all of them.
These poster are available now in a limited edition first printing, so if you want one, now is the time to beg your local fish store to get one ordered.
