Wyoming White clownfish from C-quest may look a whole lot like the platinum clownfish from ORA but the Wyoming Whites are ocellaris and the Platinums are percula. Although individuals of both strains will likely develop darkened fins with age, comparing photos of the two strains shows that the wyoming white clownfish have a more uniform white color on the body, particularly in the chest and they have darker, and more colorful faces and fins. At least one photo of the wyoming whites from C-quest shows a mature pair of their white clownfish strain with extremely dark, almost black fins which contrasted vivdly with the stark white body. It will be interesting to see how this mutation develops in the two different clownfish species. C-quest tells us that the strain started showing upalmost three years ago in the batches of three different older pairs of Amphiprion ocellaris which looked completely normal in every respect. The first crossings of the Wyoming Whites yielded only 10-15 solid white fish per clutch. Over the last couple years C-quest has been trying different crosses and pairings to encourage the wyoming whites to breed true and they now have much more stable genes which should yield a high percentage of fish with the all white body coloration. We hear that Ocean Gallery II should be getting some individuals of this fine strain this week and they should be retailing for up to $300 per individual.
