The True Percula Clownfish, Amphiprion percula, is one of the most popular additions to any marine tank. Their easy going nature, long lifespan, and ease of care make them compatible with almost any aquarium set up. Additionally, they are incredibly hardy, peaceful, and attractive species.
Gaining popularity from the iconic Finding Nemo movie, the True Percula Clown now can be found pairing with anemones in aquariums across the world. They are best kept in tanks of at least ten gallons with live rock hiding places. The True Percula will pair with anemones such as Heteractis magnifica or Stichodactyla mertensii or even standard Bubble Tip and Long Tentacled anemones.
Sometimes, a set of paired mates can reproduce in the aquarium. They will lay eggs in the base of their home anemone for safe keeping.
Overall, there is a good reason the True Percula Clown is so popular. Its ease of care and inherent attractiveness make it a great choice for both beginner and expert aquarists alike.
NOTE: The True Select designation marks one of our most beautifully patterned and colored True Percula Clown species.
