    How do you tell the difference between a true percula and a ocellaris clownfish.

    Look at the iris in the eye, if its black its an ocellaris and orange is percula.
    Also perculas have a thick black line and ocellaris a thin one.
    There is also a difference in the dorsal fin but I cannot remember it now.
