quick question; if i put a piece of live rock in the qt, will it keep my ammonia levels safe? i don't really want to do water changes every other day, thats a lot of salt. i know most medicines will kill the bacteria so i don't plan on putting the rock in my DT

Is this for QT purposes or as a hospital tank? If its for a QT, why are you medicating?

I think it would be fine for the clown depending on the size of the rock but I'm not sure about the eel? You know It can be housed with some invertebrates, like anemones and corals, but not crustaceans like shrimp or crabs, the eel will eat them, when it gets bigger I'd watch for your clown too!
