It's not considered a fake clownfish. It's considered a False Percula Clownfish. The true Percula Clown and Ocellaris Clown are very similar in appearance and are often very difficult to differentiate. The difference is that the Percula Clown has bolder shades of black on it compared to the Ocellaris Clown which has more of a dirty black on it.
