The True Percula Clownfish, Amphiprion percula, has an orange body featuring three white bands with thick black borders and black edging on the fins and tail. They are social and peaceful with other species, and can even be kept in a school if the tank is large enough, though they may become aggressive towards other genus of clownfish. They are very hardy and a great choice for a beginner.
Clownfish are reef safe and can be kept with non aggressive invertebrates and corals, and most clowns will host an anemone present in the tank. Diet should include a variety of frozen and live mysis and brine shrimp as well as spirulina, marine algae, nori, and algae based foods, 2-3 times daily.
