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 have a clown that was all by its self as his tank mate had passed months ago. I decided to give salt water fish a try and it has been great. It's a little smaller than my other clown but doing well. just happy with my purchase.
