Fish

I love all clown fish, but the True PerculaAmphiprion percula - is my favorite. The way they swim and stay in place remind me of Orcas, and upon entering the hobby I bought a pair. Their beautiful orange and white bodies moved together, never straying apart for long. Sadly, one had jumped from the tank (startled by my Coral Banded Shrimp perhaps?), so I bought a Bubble Tip Anemone to give the sole survivor a nice home at least. The clown moved in two weeks later, and I kept it for 12.5 years. Reef-safe.
