This newest multi-species, multi-gene clownfish cocktail begs the question: Have domesticated ornamental clownfish become so complicated that it would be impossible to backtrace their origins?
Sea & Reef Aquaculture has released several new types of designer clownfish in the first half of 2020, proving that not even a pandemic will slow down the pace of marine ornamental aquaculture progress.
ORA combines the Zombie Albino gene with the Snowflake gene to create a new designer clownfish combination: Zombie Albino + Snowflake -> Snow Zombie Clownfish.
It’s taken several years, but Robert King’s Zombie Albino Black Clownfish will now see wider distribution as a result of breeding efforts by ORA.
Aquarists and breeders have the requirement to not just pay lip service to conservation of species; the choices we make will have long term ramifications.
