How do you tell the difference between the Ocellaris and the Perc?

Ocellaris is a False and a Percula is a True.

If you looked in my gallery that I linked above you would have seen a True Perc.

Here's a photo of my True perculas: Notice the distinct black markings as opposed to the thin black lines of the False clown.

Dustin, I agree with the rest of them. They do both look like false perc/occelaris clowns to me.

Ok cool, I did look at the galleries and pics of the true percs, but I was not sure even at a young age (mine is only maybe .5'' long) that they would show such distinct coloration. My small one is alot darker in the body than the bigger one which I bleived to be a false perc.
