The False Percula Clownfish, Amphiprion ocellaris, has an orange body with three white bands outlined in black as well as black edging on the fins and tail. The "false" moniker comes from the fact that the orange coloration is slightly muted from the true percula clownfish, though the band pattern is almost identical. They are social and very peaceful with other species as well as other peaceful clownfish and can even be kept in a school if the tank is large enough. They are also very hardy, and a great choice for a beginner.

Clownfish are reef safe and can be kept with non aggressive invertebrates and corals, and most clowns will host an anemone present in the tank. Diet should include a variety of frozen and live mysis and brine shrimp as well as spirulina, marine algae, nori, and algae based foods, 2-3 times daily.

I bought this False Percula Clownfish - and to show you how hardy this guy is, he was the most active of 5 fish I had delivered when outside temp in MN was 21 degree out and bag water was at 68 degrees. All survived after 2 1/2 hr slow drip acclimation. He is a colorful little guy to watch darting around the tank. He is constantly on the move searching for food or detritus on the bottom as well as on reef rock. Likes to dart in and out of rock. He is getting much better at snagging Mysis shrimp I drop in before the other 6 fish hog it all, especially my Hamlet Indigo who gobbles everything that moves. A joy to watch.
