They look the same but the tank raised usually adapt better since they have always been in an aquarium.

Tank raised clowns seem more freindly too IMO. Don't know the fear of the wild and shadows near the tank. I got percs, and they're always out front. Even swimming near my hand when its in the tank.

I've only got one tank bred O. Clown. When I got him he was only about and inch long and in three months he is growing fast, almost two inches now. Doesn't seem to be afraid of anything, and is fun to watch
I'm not addicted... I can quit when ever I want...Wait...I'll just LOOK at the fish.

My tankbred black ocellaris is a real jerk. Anytime I want to use the algae pad or stick my hand in there to adjust things he nips at my wrist and knuckles with no regard to his own life. He's probably the toughtest guy I know.

LMAO! My clown jumps OUT of the tank to get me. He'd rather bite me OUTSIDE of the tank, and has succeeded twice! And just a little info, they can jump out of the tank like nobody's business....scared one of these days he's gonna miss on his way back down and hit the floor. Fiesty they are!
