Why do people call the species a "False Percula"? No one calls a Basset hound a "False Beagle"!

Ocellaris Clowns Rule!

It is not a real clownfish. It hardly ever accepts anemones because of this. I have bred Ocellaris and currently have True Percs and the trues are honestly better. They have a darker orange, also much more vibrant while the ocellaris tends to have a orange peel color. However occelaris are easier to take care of making them very good starting fish. However, if you have a well developed aquarium the True Perc is the choice to go with.

REally... Hm. I could swear I got a false perc that just adores my bubble tip. Took to it within minutes of introducting the clown to the tank.

My understanding is the visual differeance is the false has a thinner white stripe. I wasnt aware they where not clowns.

I like the thicker black lines on the true percs. I also had an ocellaris that my Rose BTA hosted.

I have BTA, condy in my tank for months. My false Perc did not pick them, instead, she picked the Colt . They are happy with each other. Little strange....
