    Gorgeous Percula Raises the Standard for Wild Caught Clowns

    With the recent influx of designer clowns from big companies like ORA and local breeders from around the world, who would have thought that Mother Nature was also busy producing some of her own! Here’s a beautiful wild caught Amphiprion percula that certainly makes for a good conversation piece. A “tear drop” just beneath the eye on one side of the body adds to it’s unique quality, and not forgetting the first white bar that extends infront of the eye.

    The extensive black coloration over much of it’s body and the unique white belly is truly beautiful. Wild caught clownfishes often succumb to the dreaded brooklynellosis , but if a healthy specimen is obtained and put through stringent quarantine, the risk of infection or mortality could be reduced drastically.

    One more photo shown below showing off the left side of this clown.

    Thank you to Bryan Ong for these photos of a truly beautiful clownfish. We hope to find more surprises like this mixed into a rather seemingly normal shipment of percula clowns in the future.

      I received one very similar to this from ORA. It wasn’t cheap, nor wild-caught, but it was an F1.

      Thanks for posting your blog its very useful for me, but if a healthy specimen is obtained and put through stringent quarantine, the risk of infection or mortality could be reduced drastically.
