Amphiprion ocellaris “Fancy White” Clownfish, Just Barely Grade


The Fancy White is a designer variant of the Ocellaris Clownfish, Amphiprion ocellaris. It originated in the tanks of Bill Addison’s C-Quest hatchery several years back now. But there’s an interesting genetic story at play here. Despite having unusual bar patterns, in every other respect, the Wyoming White is simply a standard A. ocellaris.

Our “Just Barely” grade of Fancy White represents the offspring that show no bar connections and generally very minimal genetic influence. They may shown only a small backwards cap on the headstripe, a slightly misshapen midstripe, a tailbar that’s triangular like a midstripe, an errant spot, or some other minimalist markings.  It is still pretty safe to presume that they carry the Dv gene. These fish may, or may not, be comparable to some company’s “Semi” grade.

Pictures here are representative only. Since Fancy Whites are so variable, if you’re the type of person who doesn’t like surprises, I’d recommend you wait for a WYSIWYG offering instead of buying a stock fish.
