True or False ?

If you have a female True Percula and a male False Percula will they eventually form a pair?

T + F = Mated Pair

No. You need two of the same. A percula and A ocellaris are different species and will not mate.

If you get two very small clownfish of the same species, there is a good chance they will become a mated pair.

Cheers

Occationally a Percula and Ocellaris will form a pair, even mate, but it's by no means a sure thing.

I disagree but can you elaborate? I would like to research this further.

Cheers

The Percula X Ocellaris hybrid is a very interesting looking fish. They generally have a LOT of white on them, often even connecting the normal white bands. I believe the offspring are sterile.

I have also seen Maroon X Ocellaris hybrids.

That must be either one nice fish or one ugly fish

Actually it's very common to pair two different species. There are even ocellaris x maroon clown hybrids. There are pics to prove it on RC
