Put nitro floss in your filter, it works really well and you can wash/re-use it, u can get it from any good website, it really reduced mine

Also if you're going by the 1"/4gal rule, in clowns alone you're looking at 4 fish times 3 inches, times 4 gallons
4x3x4=48 you have 12 gallons for the rest of your fish combined.... yet you say it is not overstocked?
angels are deep body fish and as such would require more.
people here are just trying to help you. Nobody was beating you down cuz your 15, it doesn't matter what your age is... everyone new to the hobby has a learning curve! Many of us have made mistakes, but just because you don't like the answer you're getting doesn't mean you have to get upset. Either you can take the advice and have healthy fish or you can leave it try your hand at corals and see what happens. The only thing we can do is advise you, we can't make you take your fish back or get a bigger tank or any of that stuff. If you listen to those who have made your mistakes and are trying to let you know it's a bad deal, your fish will be much happier and your job as their keeper will be easier.

But all your fish are going to grow, and with that growth will come aggression due to lack of space. That and the bioload causes by these fish are going to screw your parameters like they already are starting to. That's what everyones trying to say here.

it doesn't matter what size they are currently, when figuring for your tank size you use adult measurements... unless you plan on buying several tanks in order to keep up with growth.
The best practice is to be able to house the adult size of the fish you want, or upgrade your aquarium to one that will work for your pets.

the pet store you bought your fish from (if they care about customers) may buy the fish that are too big for your tank back from you, some only give store credit but if your lookin for corals-theres your coral money!
If they wont you can call some others in the area, they may be looking to steal some a customer from the competition by offering better customer service, you will almost assuredly end up with store credit in this situation though...
