闪电透红小丑大量上市

当我们走进鱼店看到很多便宜的闪电透小丑鱼时,我们就知道这一天一定会到来。当年我们在新几内亚的巴布亚岛首次发现闪电透红小丑仿佛还是昨天发生的事情,而现在,大量的人工闪电透红小丑充满了每一家海水鱼店。

 

这周,我们在参观一家水族商店时,突然意识到闪电褐红色小丑鱼已经完全商品化了。 这家有着数十年历史的海水鱼店以其底砂过滤的特色而闻名,在它的金鱼缸里有很多闪电透红小丑,价格低到惊人。

 

每条鱼仅仅59美元(约人民币406元),这是迄今为止我们所见过的最便宜的闪电透红,但它们也不是最好看的。在繁殖闪电透红小丑鱼的热潮中,由于多年的炒作和多年的求而不得,使人们繁殖这种小丑鱼时几乎没有或根本没有进行质量控制。

 

即使质量最好的闪电透红也充斥着人工饲育的痕迹。我们称这类商品为哈巴狗,恶犬,怪胎。不过,这只透红小丑却给这个乌烟瘴气的市场带来了一丝曙光。

 

在大量繁育者的追求和市场的双重刺激下,我们有希望看见曙光,一,闪电透红小丑鱼的质量会所有提高,当然你仍然会看到有低端的水族商店售卖低质量的闪电透红——希望将来数量会减少。

 

二,更令人激动的是,目前我们所看见的闪电透红已经发育成熟,这些成熟的小丑鱼会成为种鱼,你可以赌一把,就像曾经的冬霜小丑鱼一样,这些种鱼的优秀基因会遗传至下一代。

 

我们已经在ORA公司看到了一种与众不同的闪电金红小丑,谁知道呢,或许会有更多与众不同的小丑鱼被繁育出来,像摩卡斗士小丑,白金小丑,摩斯卡小丑。从某种程度上说,一种纯粹的、完美的闪电褐红色小丑鱼无疑是一种令人振奋的小丑鱼,但目前还不清楚未来透红小丑会驯化成什么样子。

We knew this day would come, that we’d walk into a fish store, and see some lightning maroon clownfish offered up at affordable, double digit prices. It seems like just yesterday we we were writing about the first lightning maroon collected in Papua New Guinea, yet now it’s possible to see representations of this domesticated maroon clownfish at full line pet shops with a saltwater aquarium section. 

 

This new realization about the completed commoditization of lightning maroon clownfish happened to us this week, while visiting an aquarium store precisely like this. A decades old mom ‘n pop LFS which can be characterized as being old school with undergravel filters on everything, and a dedicated ‘goldfish section’ had some lightning maroon clowns in stock, with a price that gave us reverse sticker shock. 

 

At just $59, these were by far the cheapest Lightnings we’ve ever seen, but they also weren’t the best looking in the bunch. In a rush to produce the lightning maroon clownfish strain, and with years of hype and pent-up demand, there’s been very little to no cullingquality control of the fish that are released in the aquarium hobby. 

 

Even the best quality lightning maroon clownfish show some definite captive breeding artifacts and anything less, well, let’s just say the lower shelf specimens can only be described as pug-faced, bulldog, freaks. But, there’s a definite silver lining to this guppyfied clownfish strain reaching the rock-bottom bargain bin. 

 

With so many breeders producing Lightning Maroon Clownfish and probably almost satisfying the market demand, we’re likely going to see a couple things happen. One, the quality of Lightning Maroon clownfish should improve – you’ll still have lower end aquarium shops stocking junky ones – and hopefully the number of defects will be reduced in the future. 

 

Second and most exciting, is that now we get to see some of these fish grow up, showing us what the strain can become when the fish are mature, and these mature fish will become breeders. You can bet that next bucket of salt that like the white Amphiprion before them, this is just the beginning of breeders tinkering with the genetics of lightning maroon clownfish.

 

We’re already beginning to see this with ORA’s Gold Maroon Lighting Clownfish, which will grow up to be very different fish. But who knows what other interesting strains will be developed using existing strains like the Peacekeeper, Gold flake and morse code Maroon Clownfish. In some way a pure, perfect lightning maroon clownfish is an unequivocally awesome clownfish strain, but there’s no telling what is in store for the future of domesticated Premnas biaculeatus.
