Amphiprion percula “Addison’s Quest” WYSIWYG 1-16-2016

$119.00

This is a WYSIWYG offering. This is the EXACT fish being offered.  THIS FISH was one of our original cover models, and at the moment, is the only Addison’s Quest left in stock.

A unique new gene in Amphprion percula, the “Addison’s Quest” may look like Picasso at first glance, but it behaves differently in breeding. Interesting in its own right, the Addison’s Quest gene could also be useful raw material for the creation of new designer clownfishes.

Description

This is a WYSIWYG offering. This is the EXACT fish being offered.  THIS FISH was one of our original cover models, and at the moment, is the only Addison’s Quest left in stock.  Approximate, guestimated size 1.25″ (in our world), aka. “small”

The “Addison’s Quest” variation of Amphiprion percula likely represents the discovery of a new mutant gene, which was isolated by Mitch May of Booyah’s Reef, descending from the “C-Quest Line” of Onyx Percula. Addison’s Quest Percula Clownfish have subtle to wild deviation from the normal vertical barring pattern of Amphiprion percula. The level of patterning varies, with some fish showing very little and some even showing what appears to be normal, standard barring on one of the two flanks.  The more extremely patterned fish may have swirls, horizontal lines, or even added spots of white on the flank.  All “Addison’s Quests” have the ability to display “Onyx” coloration as well, and typically they are shipped with full black flanks.  Some may have black spiny portions of the dorsal fine as well.

Based on the reports of May, Addison’s Quest, as a mutation gene, likely behaves in a similar fashion the Snowflake gene in Amphiprion ocellaris.  May reports the following breeding results:

Addison’s Quest X Onyx Percula = 50/50 of the same.
Addison’s Quest X Addison’s Quest = 66% Addison’s Quest, 33% Onyx Percula.

The clinching proof that the Addison’s Quest genetic is not the Picasso gene was found when May reported the results of Addison’s Quest X Picasso Percula; 0% Platinums in the offspring.  We won’t tell you what he did get at this time however…we’ll leave that to Booyah!
