Alpha Aquaculture is lucky to receive the first PeaceKeeper Maroons to leave the Captive Bred Ltd hatchery in Israel! Two PeaceKeepers arrived this evening in Chicago, IL where I accepted them. After receiving them I made the two and a half hour trip back to the Alpha Aquaculture facility in Madison, WI. I was so excited to finally open the box and see them but I waited!
Once I opened the box I got my first glimpse of the worlds rarest fish and WOW I was stunned!!! They were more beautiful than I had even imagined! I’ve seen millions of clownfish in person since I started in this business and of all those clowns I’ve never seen anything like the PeaceKeeper. Since I was a kid I’ve always liked the way that Gold Stripe Maroons look both in form and color. But to see the Gold Stripe form and color coupled with the rarest patterning ever seen on the planet just blew me away!
After taking a moment to catch my breath I began careful acclimation of them into one of Alpha’s quarantine systems. They received a temperature acclimation followed by a water chemistry acclimation. Once in their new temporary home I got to see them swimming and happy. It was an incredible sight! I will never forget my first experience seeing the rarest and nicest patterned designer clownfish on the planet!
