Finally!! I have fish!

I have the best mom in the WORLD! She took me to the lfs and got me some fish. I am so totally excited, I hope I don't kill anyone.
I know the yellow one is a blue spotted rabbit fish.
But I can't remember exactly what the names of the clown fish are or their anemone. They started hosting in it in the bag on the way home!
So if you guys could help me out with names and any suggestions you have on caring for these guys... I think I know the basics but tips and tricks would be great!

Well, the anemone is a sebae and the clowns look like black ocellaris maybe? Or clarki? I can't tell.

A small piece of shrimp for your anenome once a week and he'll appreciate it. That's what I feed mine. My fish now feeds him anything that he thinks is food, nori, which he won't eat, coral, which he won't eat, shrimp pellets, I'm not sure about looks like he ate it today. If my clown can't fit it in his mouth it goes to his anemone.

I thought the guy said percula, but it could be just something he said at some point while I was in there. They are black with white stripes yellow lips, yellow pectoral fins.

They are all doing really well I think. The rabbitfish has already mowed down the hair algae that was growing and the clowns are venturing out little by little.

Does the anemone look like its doing well to you guys? (I know the pics aren't that great, sorry)

Have no clue about the anemonae, you really wont know the true color until later on I dont think.

They look nice though!

Perhaps black percula then. Ocellaris clowns are commonly referred to as false percula clowns also.

The anemone to me looks pretty good. Maybe a little pale but nothing compared to the sebaes I see for sale.

I'm pretty sure your clown aare Sebae's. Clarkii's i think are lighter in color, and have more yellow in them.

My new favorite type of clown is Yellow Stripped Maroon. I remember how excited i was when it hosted in my bubble tip anemone!!

Congrats! Great looking fish!!!

Looking at it again, I'm almost certain they are black perc's.

Why is it so hard to find pics of these darn things? I found one picture labled as a black percula that looks like mine, but there are tons that are labled as that that look totally different.
