Nemo was Amphiprion ocellaris. A. ocellaris typically have 10-11 dorsal spines whereas A. percula 9-10 and A. percula tends to have thicker black border lines shadowing the white bands and often overcasting much of their orange coloration than that of ocellaris. Their area of inhabitance is also non-overlapping, but both considered "bread and butter" fish for most retailers and "puppy dogs" of the aquariums for hobbyists worldwide. Their care and disposition is relatively the same.

Amphiprion ocellaris is the same as a False clownfish, Ocellaris clownfish, and False percula clownfish. Amphiprion percula is True percula at most retailers I see.
