How do you tell the difference between an ocellaris and a percula clown?
I looked it up on google images, and i was flipping back and forth, and i still dont see any differences. Is there any tricks or tips on how to tell the difference?

The percula usually have more black. The ocellaris usually have a thin outline of black around the white at best, while the percula will usually have a thicker black line, sometimes the black will be very prominant and connect or even cover over all the orange in some morphs. Most LFSs will label perculas as 'true percula clown'. If in doubt ask them and see what they say. You should pay a little more for an actual percula.

fishguy is right. My lfs has a 100g with perculas for sale with "True percula" $22.99 each, or tank raised oscellaris clowns for $19.99

Thanks for reminding me, 'tank-raised' usually costs more as well. Look for captive bred if you can though, better in a lot of ways.
