clown fishes?

OK, this might sound dumb, but what is the diff between Percula and a False Percula? Are there any benefits vs having the other? Or they pretty equal across the board?

false percula is named for its very similar appearance, it is an oscellaris clown, only real difference is oscellaris are hardier, and ive noticed more of an orange and percula have a more yellow tone, but are brighter. percula have much thicker black bands aroumd their white ones too

ive also heard that percula can actually turn into a black and white clown naturally, though this is back by absolutely no info

and in stores, atleast around me, percula are almost impossible to find for sale
