Clownfish questions

I bought these clownfish yesterday, are theses True Percula Clownfish?

I put some mysis for them but they spit them out!

another problem I have with them is digging , they digging sand and messing up the water! is this normal?

It seems my frogspwn is too small for them to host. I want to buy something to host them,I guess if they host somewhere they stop digging.

 

Thanks

the darker looks like onyx to me but could just be a dark perc since the other isnt that dark

sure

it could be one onyx and one true perc but if you bought them from a breeder they are most likely the same breed

If their young their full colors haven't come in yet so maybe give it some time and then see what they are. If their percs the one with the most black probrally wouldn't get any more black on it but if a lot more of it turns black then it might be onyx.

The female appears to be a percula while the male looks like an ocellaris.

I was thinking that too but wasn't sure because it looked like an misbar occellariss clown.

Are they doing that because they don't have anything to host?
