What about your lighting? 3 months is cutting it close, your tank is still maturing. I also want to say, there is no guarantee the clowns will even host one.....

Not enough light, in my opinion. Do you plan to have corals in the future? Anemones have a tendency to roam a tank and don't really care about killing off that $200 coral you just bought last week!

I don't know of a 48W nova extreme. Are talking about the 48", 432W nova or the 216W fixture? What sized tank do you have?
