The nearly all white percula clownfish which we first reported back in November have started being released with a precious name and a precious price. The nearly all white clownfish which are descendants of the picasso clownfish strain will be known as Platinum Perculas and ORA livestock specialist Ocean Gallery II is first to have these available for sale for the high-rolling price of $750 each. Even at that price we expect these fish to be sold out within days. The platinum perculas have been selectively bred from picasso percula clownfish yet they seem to sport much less deformity of body and fins and their still-orange-colored eyes give these fish a very unique facial mask. The Platinum Percula clownfish are just one of the latest developments of captive bred clownfish strains like the spotcinctus and albinos which are revered by some and reviled by others. We hope that the go-toers at Ocean Gallery II will take some unique pics of the platinum perculas they have received as we are very curious to see some more imagery of these rare freaks. We’ll be on the lookout to see if anyone else receives the platinum percula clownfish. What are your thoughts on the selectively bred clownfish? Are we heading in the right direction, should we stick with wild-types or is there room for both in the aquarium trade? One more pic after the break.
