HISTORY OF PICASSO CLOWNFISH
In the Wild
Picasso clownfish occur naturally in the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea. They are exceptionally rare to find in the wild, but many have been imported into the United States. One of the earliest Picassos were imported to the breeders at ORA.
2004 - ORA Farm
ORA’s strain of Picassos originated in 2004 from a single wild male from the Solomon Islands, which was paired with a typical Onyx female. In subsequent years they have added additional wild collected Picassos into their breeding program. Most Picasso clownfish in the industry can be traced back to ORA’s breeding program.
2008 - Snowcasso™
Back in 2008 a breeder by the name Doni Marie of Doni’s Reef created the first Helmet Picassos from a pair of ORA Picassos. Along with creating the Helmet Picasso variant, Doni also created the name Snowcasso™. Doni’s Snowcasso’s are still being bred by breeders. Doni closed in 2014 and transferred her fish and Snowcasso™ trademark to Tank Bred Aquatics.
