This clown is usually sold as a Percula clown but it’s actually a False Percula clown. It is a small clownfish, getting to be about 3 to 4 inches. Not as aggressive as most of the other clownfish. Does well without anemones as it will use corals like mushrooms, frogspawn, and leathers. Be careful that it doesn’t come down with white slime diseases or Brooklynella when you first get it. If the fish show signs you need to treat it right away or the fish will most likely die.
