Overview :

The Percula clownfish is Reef-safe and hardy, the Percula clownfish does not require a host anemone – in fact the aqua cultured fish have never even seen one. It may try to nestle into coral polyps, resulting in some irritation of the coral. This fish will eat virtually any food it’s offered, but should be fed meaty foods in addition to some vegetable matter.
