    He hasn't got whitespot, just irritating coralline algae on the front glass. :p

    Thanks JB, yes they are mine, I'm contemplating whether or not I should try breed them, I believe they are quite rare, is that true? Breeding is just such a big mission though. :(

    From what I've heard, they are difficult to breed. I wonder why.
    Perculas are usually skipped by breeders, because the take double the time to grow to a sellable size compared to ocellaris.
    But you got them, that makes you a Lucky Fish, too.
    Besides picassos, they are my favourite clowns.
    I should have bought the two I saw almost one year ago. For breeding they were to small and now I can't even get them.
    Last chance by the end of this yearbis to twist jaqcuesb's arm.
