The Proaquatix Wyoming White Clownfish are a variant of A. ocellaris that have a significant amount of white on their body. The Wyoming White clownfish is almost entirely white, but does have orange on its face and in some cases its pectoral fins. Each Snowflake is evaluated by an experienced grader for the percentage of white and the attractiveness of the striping. Just as their name implies - no two are alike. This Wyoming White Clownfish is aquacultured by Proaquatix located in Vero Beach, FL.
The Wyoming White Clownfish is a very popular fish and will get along with
other Clownfish in the same aquarium, depending on the size of the
aquarium. It is also one of the first marine aquarium fish to be bred
successfully in captivity. They do extremely well in the aquarium and
are very peaceful.
The Wyoming White Clownfish does not need an Anemone to survive, but will
accept many different Anemones as its host, including corals. Their
favorite Anemones to call home are the Carpet Anemones Stichodactyla

Clownfish have a very distinct swimming
motion that is different from most fish. This is likely passed on
through their genetic makeup from centuries of wiggling within the

tentacles the Anemone's mucus is likely smeared over the Clownfish's
body, which then protects it from additional stings.
the wild they live in small groups with one large dominant female, one
smaller sexually active male, and a handful of smaller males and
juveniles. When the female is lost the largest male will then change
sex and become the dominant female with the other Clowns moving up the
ladder behind it.
I love these guys! They were super active right from the start and they are beautiful and super healthy. Out of the two one looks exactly like the picture. The other has a little bit of black on the body but he has such a great personality. I've had them for about a week now and I couldn't be happier.
Very good Clownfish beautiful so far very fun to have happy with my order!
