    Just tell whoever is rehoming them that one is a Percula and one is an Oscellaris and then dodge questions from that point like a politician. Take 2!
    Looks like she has an Ocellaris and a Blood Orange (or a variant of it).

    Are these being rehomed? Also, are they a bonded pair?

    Yeah eventually, once I start adding to this tank, they won't go well. Yes, they are bonded.

    If you want them I'll let you have them as soon as I'm ready to rehome them.

    I have one thing to say why the hence you wanna live in Houston if you so concerned about this.
    And if this is related to the hobby why would anybody still go into or wanna be in this reefing hobby????

    For years ppl are in this hobby and for years there were awesome tanks with beautiful liverock either setup with LIVE liverock or DRY liverock.
    Clean it just as the best way we can do, but what is the best way to do in order to clean liverock??
    Take it from me as I have it done many times but you need to take you time, just soak in fresh faucet water with a few cups of bleach (not gallons as so many do as it ain't matter) that everything and all or at least most of it is soaked pretty good for two weeks or longer, well that said for to many ppl what I just stated is a dirty word and I don't know as they want it yesterday.......... right??
    Two weeks or longer to wait are you CRAZY............ yes I'm but it's the best way.
    Soaking it for two weeks or longer and I'm taking about new dry or old used rock it ain't matter.
    After the soaking period you just wash it with a hose a 6psi stream on is strong enough to get most of it off or if you prefer a pressure washer it ain't matter if it becomes airborne as there is already much more in the air which is a lot worse than our liverock.
    However what stays behind is going to help you in your cycling process.
    Now after we wash it we let it dry in the sun foremost the used dry rock as you want to kill still some stuff on but take it from me the bleach did that already for you.
    After we dry it you can cure it, how....... well in a trash can with saltwater and a pump or just in your tank and let it take it's course as I have done that.
    Aquacsape it nicely and keep lights off, run your skimmer during this cure process.
    Once we cure that rock in or out your tank you will start the cycle, add any bacteria to the tank and a carbon source in the form of ammonia.
    I'm going to tell you something and you will either laugh or hate me, years back the ammonia we used was pee.......... yes we peed in a small bottle and dumped a small amount just enough to give us a ammonia reading, ok I didn't hear you laughing so you must hate me but I get used to that.
    After the ammonia dropped to close to 0.0 we dose again some ammonia in order to repeat this process.
    Many ppl test for nitrite but I don't as you will get that no matter what and if ammonia comes down that nitrite will do so as well as it will change into nitrate which is good as that is a good nutrition for you bacteria.
    Your tank should if you have done it right be cycled after 7 days.
    All this is done with not running you skimmer period.
    Now you can turn the light on and add one or two fish, yes ONE or TWO fish as you want to cycle further cause you tank is cycled on the bioload of what was in your tank and that is nothing now adding fish you will add again a ammonia source, you tank or mainly liverock will have more bacteria due to that bioload.
    This process is a slow process and I don't care what you hear or see from the so called experts on TV or read.
    There are many ways but the stuff that stays behind in your liverock is helping you cycle your tank.
    If you read some where that the PO4 and No3 is going up and not down or stays steady at a high level you didn't cycle your tank long enough and added livestock to it to soon, and there are many many many who did that.
    Believe to many ppl rush this hobby and long term it takes so much longer before your tank matures and I'm talking months if not close to a year.

    Any ways,
    Aerosolize or aerosolized a form of ultramicroscopic solid or liquid particles dispersed or suspended in air or gas.
    I have one thing to say why the hence you wanna live in Houston if you so concerned about this.

    BTW, don't forget the importance of this thread, !*!*!*!*! Hobbyist Helping Hobbyist !*!*!*!*!
    Thank you!
    Yea I remember reading in more than one place people putting per into the tank. Thought ewe before when I read it but face it the fish pee in it! Ewe!

    Update. Nothing to update. The top and bottom and sides will have doors. This is just a fitting stage

    You can do a search for "differences between a percula ..."in google search. Looks like an ocellarus usually has one more dorsal spine and a thinner black outline in it's body. Good luck with the ID.
