Also, the lfs will probably try to sell you an anemone for the clown fish. Don't buy one. Get a frogspawn coral instead when your tankk is ready for corals.

Well, it's too bad that you didn't see the fishless articles here and went with damsels. Don't be too trusting of the LFS and do your own research. As well, temper your research with thought. You don't have to wait six monhs before adding corals. What you need is a properly cycled t ank and the necessary equipment. For corals you should have a good protein skimmer. For anything you will need a properly cycled tank: 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and building nitrate

That's the start of a "diatom bloom". It's just part of your tanks cycle and will burn itself out in a few weeks.
