Orange with 3 white bands that typically have thin black edging. Nearly identical to Percula Clownfish White pattern morphs available as a result of captive breeding. Captive-bred clownfish can survive without a host anemone but do require a small structure for a sense of security. With proper care these fish can live for 20 – 30 years.
