40 Gallon Tank Capacity

I checked out the Calculator function today and the fish capacity calculator suggests only 8inch of adult fishes.

8inches!!!!!!!

I currently have 4 fishes and if they were all to growth full length, they will be at a whopping 19inches total.

6'' Lemonpeel Angelfish
6'' GS Maroon Clownfish
4'' Whitetail Damselfish
3'' Yellow Damselfish

Should i be worried?

Depends on how the tank is set up and any compatability issues. It's unlikely the damsels will ever reach their full grown adult size or the maroon, but certainly possible. FWIW, it gives you reason to upgrade

Picture taken with Redeye Flash...Only way to keep the picture quality high without any of the fishes blurring out. Do you think I can fit any more fishes in there?

How about a bicolor blenny or a small wrasse like a six-line. Those would make a fine addition.
