Don’t even know what to think of these, but I suppose they might be ugly to me but amazing to the right person.

I’m not in the market for new clownfish just curious if anyone else saw this. I’m all for new developments in fish breeding so guess we can’t complain. Not really sure what these ones are.

The dark clownfish look like they would be trippy under blues.

Both look better than long fin clowns (my husband likes those.. eghh).

My question is what ever happened to the peacekeeper clownfish? They are talked about in 2014 but I never saw them sold.

My eyes…… Somebody give me a blindfold.

The natural varieties are more than enough, and not just your good old Ocellaris and Percula. The Orange Skunks I think they’re on par, if not better. They look like a redesigned Ocellaris with that singular white stripe and orange body.

Ningaloo Clowns look great too. Not the black Clarkiis.

If designer Clownfish (especially the crazy ones) were the only Clownfish I could ever keep, I’d probably stop keeping em. Lol

I don’t mind a wild Type Picasso, Onyx, or Caramel, but the amount of inbreeding in the Ocellaris complex in order to create designer Clowns has made me shy away from even the natural looking ones because I can’t trace their genetic lineage.
