The Ice Storm Clownfish is the “Next Gen” Snow Storm


Ice Storm Clownfish.

Scientific Name
Amphiprion ocellaris

Sea and Reef continues to be at the forefront of Clownfish breeding in the US and they continually impress us with their beautiful designer clownfish strains and that is no exception with their newly released Ice Storm Clownfish.

Sea and Reef is referring to the Ice Storm as their “next gen” Snow Storm Clownfish. The classic Snow Storm Clownfish was created by breeding a Black Storm Clownfish with one of their Phantom Clownfish. The resulting offspring are predominantly white with black eyes with surrounding orange coloration. The fins have orange and black highlights which also distinguish it from the Snow Storm Clownfish.

Basically this is another combination of Black Storm and snowflake genetics and the new strain was just released on April 24th 2020 and this may be my favorite new release from Sea & Reef since the Black Storm release on November 1st 2017.

If you are interested in purchasing the Ice Storms then please reach out to your local or online fish store to see if they can order them in for you. Sea and Reef on sells to authorized local fish stores and online dealers.
