Need help identifying this fish?

I bought this fish and was told it was a True percula. Do you think it is a True or False?

I think it is a tank raised clown, I think it is too small to really tell...yet. But I would lean way towards Amphiprion ocellaris (false perc).

False Perc IMO. I Just got the 2 similar clowns from lfs in NJ. The tank was marked "Tank raised True Percula (ocellaris)" I asked the guy which it was and he told me he thought it was false perc. More research on my part told me he was probably right.

But I loved the little guys so I got them anyway. Doing great in their new home.
