    It would be easy to overlook the broken stripe clownfish above in a tank full of domestic strains of picasso and snowflake clownfish, but this big girl was collected in the wild. C. V. Neptune Marine collected the broken stripe clownfish, most likely an Amphiprion ocellaris, in Palawan Philipines. The broken stripe clownfish may be a highly unusual variant but a lightning maroon ocellaris clownfish it is not. Still if you are interested this specimen ahs been earmarked for import to the U.S. and if want to get a better look at her check the gallery after the break.

    Clown without stripes is almost like a zebra without stripes- it becomes a horse, and a clown without stripes becomes a goldfish :biggrin:

    Ugly, probably misfigured from the after effects of all the cyanide collection :p

    Same as with the after effects of a atom bomb on people...
