Howdy,

Picked up a couple designer clowns from a LFS that was closing down. As such, they only charged me what they’d charge for a standard percula ($25).

Anyone know what variety these may be? Sorry for the potato quality pictures.

Thanks!

The black one looks like a misbar ocellaris and the other a mocha gladiator.

More specifically the black one looks a lot like a Darwin Black Ocelaris

Be careful with one being a percula and the other being an ocellaris there can be aggression between them. I would keep a good eye on them. I hope everything works ok. Does look similar to a mocha gladiator but the eye is more orange which makes me believe its a picasso percula due to the coloring of the eye and body marks. I would agree with the black darwin post. I have a premium picasso percula which does look similar to yours. Either way gorgeous fish but as stated in my post be careful with them being a percula and ocellaris. A good tell is the more orange eye is a percula while a darker black eye is ocellaris. Hope things go well good steal either way.here is my premium picasso percula.
