    hey so i had two false perc in my 24 nano tank.i later on introduced a black clownfish(3") to my tank. after a while my black perc started to attack only my female so i decided to take out the female false perc. and now my black perc and my false perc(male) seems to b doing pretty well. they are both touching eachother kind of. sometimes they nib at eachother but thats it.
    SO my question is can i pair them up and is it possible to breed them? black perc and false perc?

    Definitely wrong section, but I dont know if you will be able to do that or not. I doubt it but I dont know.

    I wouldn't try it...clownfish are weird enough with their own species, so a different clownfish will be pushing it...

    p.s. welcome to the site.

    I just re-read your OP.
    The only difference between a true perc and false perc,is the false is tank bred,where the true is wild caught.The black clown is actually a false perc thats bed for the black coloration.
    I think.

    What do you consider a false perc? I thought Amphipiron Ocellaris was considered a false perc where as Amphirion Percula was a true perc?

    They are two different species.
    Amphiprion ocellaris = False Percula
    Amphiprion percula = True Percula

    The difference is both in size, dorsal spine count, black outlines and price. Either can be wild caught or captive bred. True percs are not as hardy as the false.

    Google is my friend :)

    I'm not sure I follow you 100%. Are both your clowns a.ocellaris or do you have 1 of each. If you have 2 ocellaris or 2 percs, colors make no difference to them. They are the same fish. If you have 1 of each, there is a slim chance they will breed. Sanjay cross bred ocellaris and percula and came out with his Black Photon hybrids...which were for sale on Divers Den for around $150/pair.
