I'm no good with the designer clowns but occelaris usually have less black highlighting around their white than perculas.

I think they are just settling a dominance and the fighting will die down in time. My female still beats the crap out of my male from time to time, then they cozy up with each other. Im sure they will be fine, give it a little time.

As long as they are both occelaris they should learn to get along. It must be mentioned though that the minimum tank size recommended for a pair is closer to 30g. Keep an eye on them!

Update on today.
Things have seemingly gotten more odd. Our black clown who was aggressive and trying to be more dominant is now the submissive. The orange clown is at one side of the tank and our black is in the other in a corner. When our black clown tried to leave this area our orange clown (who is a tad smaller) chases the black clown back down in the corner and our black clown twitches and shivers. The orange clowns twitching has become minimal. They are not fighting. Crazy how this was the complete opposite yesterday.

Also after reading up on saltwater tanks I am aware that the size tank we have is rather small. I don't think we will be adding more fish at this point as of now it will be live rock coral our shrimp and our clowns.

Any advice or feedback is appreciated. Thank you! !
