Percula Clownfish are found living in anemones on the reefs of Oceania, the Indo-Pacific, and the Great Barrier Reef. For this reason, they are considered to be anemonefish. This iconic fish has an orange body striped with white bands, outlined in black. Selective breeding has created several recognized variations of this clownfish. (This includes Platinum, Misbar, Picasso, Onyx, etc.) The females of this species appear larger and are the more dominant. Percula Clownfish are hardy members of the Pomacentridae family. They can reach up to 4 inches in length and require an aquarium of at least 30 gallons with plenty of room to swim. There is another species of clownfish that looks very similar to this one: Amphiprion ocellaris. The easiest way to distinguish between the two species is to look for these 4 notable differences:
Their diet should be varied and consist of things like algae, phytoplankton, frozen brine shrimp, Mysis shrimp, copepods, pellets, and flake food. A large portion of a clownfish diet in the wild consists of Marine Phytoplankton, which makes an excellent live feed for all of your Fish, Corals and other invertebrates.
