New ORA Blood Orange Clownfish Hybrid!!

Check this out! There's a new hybrid clown available from ORA called a blood orange clown. Its a cross between an ocellaris and a maroon clown. I think it was first available Sept 30, so it's literally brand new. I think they're pretty cool looking. I kinda want one lol. I already saw one come and go through divers den.

Blood Orange Clownfish | Premnas biaculeatus x Amphiprion ocellaris | ORA | Oceans, Reefs & Aquariums Oceans, Reefs & Aquariums

Theres not very much info on them, I'm not sure of temperment. Im guessing its more aggressive than the average occelaris.

To bad they didn't use a golden stripe to throw some more variation in there.

I think they did use gold stripe maroons actually. But I remember reading that they were unsure if the hybrid would show any gold yet.

I think it was just a female Maroon and male Ocelaris...IMO, it is okay, just not as strikingly different as something like Snowflakes or Lightenings. At $50 a fish, I'm not sure...

Well I love him haha. I'd just like to see an actual picture of one in a tank. The pic ORA publishes isn't so great to judge how big/ the true color under different lighting
