VIDEO – ORA’s spawning pair of Amphiprion leucokranos
20 Nov, 2013
ORA has shared this amazing time-lapse video documenting the third spawn of their Amphiprion leucokranos, the Whitebonnet Clownfish.
This is a rare “species” of clownfish that is actually thought to be a rarely occurring natural hybrid, possibly the result of hybrid mating between A. chrysopterus and A. sandaracinos.
This particular pair has a rather long history behind it; check out ORA’s “Fed Ex Lost and Found” story of how these fish made the journey from New Jersey to Florida.
We assume that ORA will be successful rearing the eggs from these fish, and hopefully this elusive variant will become more accessible to aquarists in the near future. When? Watch the video to the end to find out.
