the top one's a Snowflake more than likely and the bottom ones are their Naked Clowns, both from ora. They're sold on liveaquaria.com every now and again for high dollars, $180 or more for a pair.

Those are snowflake clowns (ocellaris) bred in England. Live Aquaria has them from time to time as well as Sea In The City in Orloando Fl. I also think a place in Florida in Sebastian (not ORA) has now started breeding them (but I could be wrong).

Here is a thread from a while ago that has recently been brought back uphttp:http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/sh...readid=758349.
This is my pair some people do not like the looks of these clown but I think they are awesome.

I am going to have to call ORA and see if they will send me one...or send it to a store...I would like one regular and one snowcap. I think these are almost better than picassos...

The naked clowns in the bottom of the pic are pretty reasonable my lfs had them for 35.00 a pair. The snowflakes on the other hand which I think are awesome are pricy as can be & ive only seen 1 in real life.

ORA does not breed snowflakes.

That's cheap for a pair. A few months ago, I contacted a dealer on-line. They wanted $350 for a pair and wanted to know if I wanted to be placed on a waiting list. I said thanks, but no thanks. I settled for a pair of picassos and still ended up paying over $200 for the pair from my LFS!
