The Picasso Percula Clownfish, Amphiprion percula, is a variant of the regular percula featuring three separate white bands that display an exaggerated barring pattern with black margins on all fins and bordering the white bands. The grading system evaluates the completion of patterns or bands on individual specimens. 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've had my 2 Picassos for 2 weeks now and I love them. They had no black when I received them but now they are darkening up nicely. I am very happy with them! The one who I think is going to be the female comes to the top begging for food the moment I come to up to the tank!
This was my second purchase from Saltwaterfish.com and I am so very pleased.
Got 2 of these 2 weeks ago they look great, They were well packed came when they said they would and are very heathy
