Unless specified as WYSIWYG, the photographs are a representative sample and the product you receive may be slightly different in shape and coloration. Many factors can influence the appearance of corals such as stressful events like shipping, lighting changes, intensity, spectrum, water chemistry, and overall nutrition. Typically speaking if corals lose color during transit they will recover them in a relatively short period in optimal conditions.

Amphiprion percula

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:

  • Ocellaris clownfish have 11 spines in the first dorsal fin, the Percula has 10 spines.
  • Ocellaris clownfish have thinner black edging outlining the fins than Percula clownfish.
  • Ocellaris clownfish usually have a taller dorsal fin than Percula clownfish.
  • Ocellaris clownfish have darker coloring surrounding their eye pupils, whereas, Percula clownfish usually show lighter orange around their pupils.

    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.
