    What do you get when you cross a tangerine orange clownfish with a naked ocellaris? You’d probably end up with a mess, but in a perfect world where your clownfish-breeding hoop dreams come true on F1 (Like Matt’s Lightning clowns), maybe you’d end up with a solid golden orange clownfish.

    Well now we don’t have to do the cross because good friend of the blog, Dr. Chung Wing Hung has just scored the most beautiful wild collected ocellaris sporting both of these unique features to perfection. The video from Dr. Chung aka Coral Friend shows his freshly acclimated golden orange clownfish swimming happily around with a supernatural glow from its lack of any white, or any black pigmentation.

    We’ve seen pictures of wild-collected ocellaris and percula clonwfish being collected without any bars, that is not new. However the albino-style strain is only known from three different captive breedings, so to discover a wild fish with both a lack of bars, and what seems to be a complete absence of black pigment is kind of really cool. We’re going to reserve our analysis of this fish’s potential genetic makeup until we reel in those pictures but in the meantime, be amazed by yet another ocean-produced surprised.
