Percula Clownfish (Amphiprion Percula) come from the Indo-Pacific region.
The fish are oval-shaped and stocky-bodied with ten dorsal spines. The Percula Clownfish displays a vivid orange colour and is decorated with three distinctive white bars. The fins have dark black markings. A Percula Clownfish can reach a length of 8 centimetres.
In the wild, the Percula Clownfish will usually co-exist with a sea anemone named Heteractis Magnifica. In captivity the Percula Clownfish can adapt to other anemone species, but not to all. The anemones provide the fish with protection from predators, and the clownfish removes parasites from the anemone and provides it with protection from some species of reef fish that might eat the anemone’s tentacles. If you provide your Percula Clownfish with a new species of anemone in the aquarium it will take a few days for the Percula Clownfish to adapt to it. If you choose an anemone from the same species as the fish is already used to, it will require no adaptation period. Keep in mind that some anemones are not suitable for Percula Clownfish and will sting as well as eat it. The fish tend to be more mellow when kept without an anemone since that can trigger territorial behavior.
In the home aquarium, the Percula Clownfish requires an aquarium of at least 30 gallons with a fair amount of live rock.
You can keep Percula Clownfish with other peaceful species that are not large enough to swallow it whole, such as tangs and wrasses, as long as you provide plenty of hiding places. They are also coral-safe.
Percula Clownfish are omnivores. You should provide a diet that is varied with meaty foods like brine and mysis shrimp and finely chopped shrimp and fish. It is also good to feed them flakes and pellets with Spirulina added if your tank does not have much algae in it.
