A. ocellaris clown = false perc...A. percula = true perc.

My true perc has adopted my button polyps and hangs out in the star polyps occasionally.

No it worked thank you. I just got another true perc. Hopefully they will be a mated pair. One of them is very dar vary dark and has lots of black. the other does not have much black and is a very light orange. Hopefully that is a female. If they are male and female will it still take them a while to get used to eachother. And how long does it usually take for a clown to host something? Can it take a while if they are even going to do it?

Color hasn't anything to do with it really. The larger of the two will become/be the female depending on their size at this point. If they are still quite small, they will either both be males or nueters. As they grow and become sexually mature, then a pairing may occur. For now they will most likely just keep each other company..

I am a bit confused by the following though:

Do you have 2x A. percula or one of each?

Cheers

well at the lfs the tag just said percula clown. I didn't mean to say ocellaris. sorry about that. So i am guessing they are true percs. could be false.
