At first glance, the Wyoming White Clownfish may look similar to the Maine Blizzard Clownfish. However, the Wyoming Whites are a variation of the Ocellaris Clownfish and the Maine Blizzard Clownfish are a variation of the Percula Clownfish. Sea & Reef Aquaculture is the first hatchery to bring this gorgeous designer clownfish back in production after the original producer, C-Quest, stopped the production of this morph in 2010. Sea & Reef Wyoming White Clownfish are direct lineage from the original Wyoming White Clownfish produced by C-Quest, which is a 100% ocellaris color variant. The Wyoming White Clownfish has a uniform white coloration. Their fins are dark shortly after metamorphosis and turn jet black as the fish grows. Their orange face will develop a beautiful black outline as the fish mature. Some Wyoming White Clownfish have a black spot immediately behind the gill cover (see picture). To the untrained eye, it can sometimes be challenging to tell the diff erence between ocellaris clownfish and true percula clownfish. The giveaway is their eyes and the number of spines in their dorsal fins (see picture below). The iris of an ocellaris clownfish is typically pigmented with shades of black and grey whereas the iris of a true percula clownfish is typically a clear orange color. The number of dorsal spines in true percula clownfish ranges from 9-10 with 10 being the norm. In ocellaris clownfish the number of dorsal fin spines range from 10-11 with 11 being the norm.
