The Platinum Percula is nearly all white variation of the True Percula Clownfish. The result of years of selective breeding, the Platinum Percula is derived from the famous Picasso Clownfish. This striking white clownfish develops orange and then black fins as it matures, and retains some orange color in the face.Not to be confused with the Snowflake Clownfish, which is actually A.ocellaris, the Platinum Percula show none of the original stripes characteristic of the species. While the middle stripe of the snowflake is wide and has jagged edges,the Platinum Percula is continuosly white from head to tail. No other clownfish from the wild or from breeders,has ever come close to appearance of the Platinum Percula.This is the rarest of any clownfish color morph ever developed, and it will be the ultimate prize for any serious clownfish connoisseur. While experimenting with pairing Picassos,even the breeders at ORA were surprised to find this extraordinary result.As the juveniles began to grow-out ORA noticed the development of black fins on the rapid growers. At first the dorsal,pectoral,ventraln and caudal fins appeared to be clear with some orange color. Then some black pigment appeared on the fins, as true perculas typically do produce more black color as they age. Finally ORA observed the full black fin color develop, and nothing looked more astonishing than black fins on a whiteclownfish. These fish will be shipped as juveniles with very little fin color,but expect to observe the full color develop over time.
