Platinum Storm Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris)
The Platinum Storm clownfish is a domestic variety that is obtained through a mutation among captive-bred A. ocellaris. This spectacular designer variety features a strikingly clean pearly white body color with scant dark markings over its mouth and fins. Occasionally, individuals bear a small number of black dots over the body. While similar to better-known Wyoming White originally developed by C-Quest, Platinum Storm clowns have more white over the face; they may or may not have white over the fins. Thus, while predominantly white, individual specimens of this breed are each unique. The Platinum Storm clownfish readily accepts a wide variety of anemone species as a host; many hobbyists successfully keep this species with the bubble tip anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor).

Platinum Storm Clownfish Species Information
A. ocellaris is common in shallow tropical waters of the Western Pacific Ocean from Northern Australia to Southern Japan. The Platinum Storm clown is, however, a designer breed that is restricted exclusively to captivity.
Benefits of Aquacultured Marine Livestock
Aquacultured clownfish present a huge advantage over wild-caught specimens. For example, when bred and raised in captivity, they adjust much more easily to aquarium life. Designer clownfish specimens exhibit truly unique body markings. Better still, aquacultured specimens can better tolerate shipping stress. By purchasing aquacultured fish you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable!
