    I once had a dream of blue and green clownfish. If this is real, its a dream come true. (It is prettier then the ones in my dream too)

    I also had that pop up on my google browser yesterday. I didn't read the whole article but I did read that they'll obviously try to breed this "trait"/defect. Lord knows what they'll name them and what they'll charge for them too...

    I'm sure it's real...a lot of the ice clowns show faint blue around the transition areas which over the years they've been breeding towards more blue and given time i'm sure we'll see it get more dominant.

    Good lord that is nutty. Probably be several hundred dollars, no?

    Weren't lightning maroons pushing $1000 or something insane when they were first discovered? I'm almost positive I came across the for sale ad or a YouTube video with a price in it that was around $1,000. Is that standard pricing for a new grail?

    I don't know guys? I started this hobby because this guy [​IMG] I truly think he looks better. Just my opinion.

    I agree, I don’t see the appeal of designer clowns and think their natural colours look far better

    It looks like a terminator clown, I would get one of those.

    Throw me in with the designer group, regular clowns are too blah for my taste but to each their own.

    Lol, we have a regular orange striped and a regular black striped.

    Enjoy someof the crossbred morph's, but can't stop thinking about extreme AKC dog breed problems.

    On a side note, we have all the colors of freshwater GloFish tetras and a normal black one for a Baseline in a 37 gallon tank.
    Normal black tetra is about 4 years old.
    The other colors are good for at least a year and a half before they die and need to be replaced.
    Something always gets traded off.

    Some of these new variations remind me of the DC Superman comics from the early 60's that had " Bizarro World".

    I still like the original clowns but some of the designer clowns are amazing. Got my wife a lightning maroon, we always wanted one.
