About the Cover

The percula clownfish (Amphiprion percula) has all the qualities that aquarists look for when stocking a nano reef: they are small, compatible with other nano-friendly fish and invertebrate tankmates, and relatively hardy. As a bonus, percula clowns are being produced in great numbers by commercial breeders, and these tank-born specimens make a great choice for beginners to the marine side of the hobby. Read more about these brightly colored and charming little fish in “Splendid Species for Novice Marine Fishkeepers” (p. 72).

Species Profiles

Tip of the Month:
