The Picasso Percula Clownfish, Amphiprion percula, is an aquacultured variation of the Percula clownfish. The banding patterns of the Picasso Percula Clown are the main highlight. Irregular, wavy, beautiful, and unique, the Picasso Percula Clownfish is sure to be the highlight of your tank if introduced. It is clear that this species lives up to its name "Picasso" as it is truly a piece of art.
The Picasso Percula Clown is hardy, reef safe, easy to care for, and only requires a tank of 30 gallons making it a perfect beginner or nano tank fish. They will readily accept an anemone as a host as well. They eat an omnivorous diet including brine and mysis shrimp, flakes and pellets, and varied crustaceans.
The Picasso Percula Clownfish, like many other aquacultured clownfish receive grades on their banding patterns. A Grade A fish is the most spectacular in its variation, banding, and coloration. These are the prized specimens that are often the centerpieces of many tanks. For the case of the Picasso Percula Clown this means the clown will have most spectacular curves, strokes, and banding patterns. Grade B fish exhibit many of the same qualities as Grade A fish just to a lesser extent. They will still have beautiful wavy bands but they may not connect. A Grade C fish will be just the same with possibly less wavy and beautiful lands. The grades have nothing to do with the fish's health, simply their visual appearance.
