Iridescence in Clownfish

I don't follow fish breeding, but this bit from the folks at Coral Magazine caught my eye:

That’s so beautiful! I need to get rid of my maroon clowns eventually and get a pair of these or storm clowns


wait, are we being sarcastic or is my taste for a beautiful clown really far off? that looks scary.

To each their own. I think it looks great. If I was in the market for another clown, I'd definitely get one of these.

I’ve always been a purest when it comes to clowns. Maybe the black and white ones too.

I’m not a purist in the sense that the original is better because it’s the original. But I haven’t seen many if any designer clowns that I thought looked as good as the normal colorations. This one definitely included.

So they've been trying to breed the blue in clowns for awhile now. It was first discovered a few years back by one of the breeders but was not consistent. A lot of this has to do with yield designer clowns.

if you look at most the clowns (occs and maroons, at least) closely, they all have a hint of blue... just a matter of bringing it out more apparently.
