RHS tank raised clownfish are one of the best additions you can make to your saltwater fish aquarium or reef tank. RHS tank raised clownfish include tank raised Gold Stripe Maroon Clownfish, tank raised true Percula Clownfish and tank raised Ocellaris Clownfish. Tank raised clownfish are raised in aquariums which makes them more suitable for life in aquariums. RHS tank raised clowns will feed on frozen prepared fish food from the start which is a common hurdle when purchasing wild clownfish. RHS tank raised clowns are cuter than can be believed. An excellent choice for the beginner or advanced hobbyist.
Commonly know has the False Percula or Clown Anemonefish. A member of the damselfish family. Known to be hardy and attractive fish. Far less aggressive than the rest of the clownfish with the exception of Amphiprion percula.
In the wild it will choose Heteractis crispa, Heteractis magnifica, and Stichodactyla gigantea as host anemones. In the home aquarium they are known to accept Entacmaea quadricolor as a host, as well as some corals. Clownfish do not require a host anemone, and will do just fine without, provided there is some form of shelter.
The diet of the False Percula Clownfish should consist of fresh or frozen seafoods such as mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and other meaty items.
