Old Town Aquarium in Chicago used to get them in on a regular basis about ten years ago...absolutely stunning clowns. For all I know they may still get them in, but I haven’t been there in that long. Give them a call, I’m pretty sure they ship. Good Luck!

I contact Old Town Aquarium in Chicago. There must be some changes in management. The person I communicated with send me picture of a pair of deformed A. percula (clearly Percula) and claim that they wild caught False Perc. He did not know that False Perc is the the same as Ocellaris. Could not tell the different between Ocellaris and Percula. He basically know nothing about clowns and I would not trust him at all.



I would not recommended Old Town Aquarium in Chicago for clowns or anemones.

There are a lot of nice Sebae clowns coming in from Sri Lanka if you can’t find what you want. And they are only $14 each.
