Ture and False

Well, to keep nature in a correct context, I put the false in my 37gal. It has already taken to my frogspawn as a host since the bubble tip has a mated pair of Tomato Clowns as guests.

I bought the Misses a new Mister (true percula). She didn't like him during the day, then when the lights went out, they're friends. It will be interesting to see what tomorrow brings.

Some like the True Perc better than the False Perc...IMO the False Perc looks better cause the orange is brighter and the lines are more defined between the black and white bands. I wonder if that is a regular occurence saltwater fish cross breeding that way. I know trout do it in streams, it's some times to the detriment of the species though.

LOL.. I was simply looking for something tangible to read. No worries. I have since found a few snipits but nothing major. Thanks though.

Cheers

No worries I just thought you would find that amusing!

My favorite is the Perc X Ocellaris. They look very nice.

I absolutely agree with Steve that you are asking for trouble adding more Clownfish to a tank containing a mated pair of Tomatoes. It's only a matter of time before the female Tomato kill one of the other Clownfish.

I bought to Ocellaris's to start out my tank, one of them died about 3 months after I got it and the other was alone. So after seeing it swim around all by itself for about 2 months I decided to get it a mate.

As soon as I added the new Ocellaris it swam over to the other one and haven't been apart since, where there is one, there is the other.

You can also get them odd sized, one larger and one much smaller although it's not always a "smooth" transition. Getting the two smallest you can find makes it easier on you and them.

Cheers
