    Default Platinum and Picasso clownfish

    Hello, I have raised my first batch of clownfish to a size that is ready for sale. They are about 3 months old and .75-1" long. Their third stripe will continue to fill in as they age. I have used the new Top-Dressed Otohime food which is regarded as the best pellets for captive breed fish on the market. The clowns are a bit on the young side so please be careful when adding them in with much larger fish. It is very hard to take WYSIWYG photos but I have tried to take some example videos and photographs to show you the quality of these fish.

    Price:

    Platinum clowns: $175 each or $325 a pair
    Picasso clowns: $50-150 each or $85-$275 a pair; depending on their markings

    Thank you. No photo editing here, they really are that bright red/orange! And the third stripe will continue to form and merge for the next few months.

    Did these come from the picasso's you had (have) in your cube last year? I'm somewhat interested but not sure how i feel about having clowns again.. didnt particularly like getting bit all that much last time I had some.
