Thx and I am more than prepared, I kind of just want it done so they can start settling into the new place.

I know there onyx percs, because I did my homework before buying them, did all that fin counting stuff and know who I bought them from. And it has been a while since I read up on that, so anyone who knows better than I please educate me(that's why I'm here), but I believe the onyx part is the color variation which in the wild didn't happen very often.
There are some here from New Guinea.
Saltwater Clown Fish - Aquatic Connection (http://www.aquacon.com/Clownfish_saltwaterfish.html)

These ones were bred captively, but who knows where their parents came from. Their parent fish have very nice color and no mis bars, and from what I know are very good stock. Not all brood stock is equal some just have really awesome genetics.

Just a couple of notes to add here...

Species: A. percula, Onyx variant. "Onyx" has nothing to do with the species.
Social Structure: Relates to the inter action between the fish... monogamous pairs, harems, etc. Not the environment they are housed in.

Pics: Photos that show true coloration is important in determining species... A. percula, A. ocellaris, etc.
