    Yeah, false perculas have more subtle colors, wheras the true perculas have a bright orange (almost neon) color. Personally, I prefer the false perculas, AKA ocelaris clowns. Their colors look more natural and have a nice, dark undertone.

    Oscellaris clowns (aka "False Percs") are a completely different species, even though they do look very similar to Percula clowns. Each species has it's own different anemone preferences as well, and Oscellaris are reported to be the less aggressive of the two.
