Clownfish - Percula Clownfish



Percula Clownfish

The Percula Clownfish is very similar to the Ocellaris Clownfish, although the white body bars in the Percula are often edged in jet black. Tends to be more aggressive toward its own species than the Ocellaris. House singly or in pairs; two juveniles will usually mature into a mated pair. The female adults are larger than their male mate, as it with the Ocellaris. Associates with (Hosts) anenomes both in wild and aquaria.

Feed a varied diet (2x daily) including meaty food items such as frozen sysid shrimp, enriched brine shrimp as well as frozen or flake preparations for herbivores. (Credit - "A Pocket Expert Guide, Marine Fishes")
