The Peacekeeper maroon clownfish took the world by storm when it was revealed a few weeks ago, and as you might expect we now have the follow-up video to back up this fish’s awesomeness and authenticity. First bred and reared in Israel by Captive Bred, the Peace Keeper Maroon clownfish is still in the early stages of development.
The clear and unique 50fps video shows the disparity in coloration and marking between a young and an adolescent Peace Keeper Maroon clownfish. The little guy appears to be barely topping one inch long with a weird smoky white coloration all over its body with the white and maroon colors appearing to be smudge together.
The larger Peace Keeper, the singular specimen who has been the ambassador for the strain shows how the white and maroon color becomes clearly differentiated into stark, webbing like markings. Don’t give her a hard time because she has a little bit of an underbite, that’s common for first generation of captive bred strains and the all white face makes it hard to tell where her mouth and lips end and begin; it even looks like the white color goes inside her mouth!
Whatever you may think of this and designer clownfish strains in general, there’s no doubt that the Peace Keeper is one of the most striking maroon clownfish we’ve yet seen, right along with the infamous Lightning Maroon Clownfish. It’ll be a while yet until we see Peace Keeper outside of Captive Bred’s facility in Israel but with the rise of domestic clownfish strains, it is all but assured that one day the Peace Keeper Maroon will be all over the world.
