I don't see anything about acclimating?
Just that the tank is cycled and ready for fish.
The best way to acclimate is to float the bag (evening out the temp), then drip acclimation (with airline tubing) for minimum of 30 mins to even the parameters between the shop's water and your tank water (Salinity and pH and kH
are the main factors you need to even out). NEVER put the shop's water into your tank. Floating the bag only levels out the temps.
PS - Your clown should be fine - it's not like it had a 1.5m drop onto the floor. Clowns are very hardy as Mitchell said.
