I don't think you are overcrowded. The inverts don't add much to the bio load. However the clowns will probably outgrow a 12 gallon.

Good luck! Kat

You should be fine. I have three fish in my 12gal nano and have no problems. As I tell everyone, if you are concerned about over-stocking just take a look at your water parameters. If you consistantly have good parameters, you are not overloading the biofiltering capabilities of the tank.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
