that said, it's never bad to have extra filtration.
how many fish per gallon would you recommend, how many inch of fishe per gallon?

it could have just been a molt. they look just like a dead crab.


you can't use the inches of fish per gallon rule on salt water. you have to research each fish and plan your tank that way.
some like to school, and stay close together and can be kept in smaller tanks while others grow large and are water column swimmers and need very large tanks. some sit on the sand bed most of the time without moving and are good for small tanks too.
go to live aquaria or premium aquatics and look at their fish lists. pick a fish you like and then find out what size tank they can be kept in. most livestock websites will have that listed for you.

well the shell was flipped over and it looked liek it had a pinkish end to the claw, the shell also looked empty but it also could have been way in the shell which i left in just incase it another wants the extra shell.

i've been to live aquaria and most of the fish it says need a 20 gallon. but i don't know if a clownfish is just the lown fish in a 20 gallon or if its more then one

you could have a pair of clowns and possibly another fish in a 26 gallon.
just pick small clowns like perculas or oscellaris. no maroon clowns. they get too big.
