Did you cycle your aquarium? Kepp an eye on your Maroon Clown, as they can be pretty aggressive. And BTW, Welcome to AA!

Test your water. Ammonia, nitrate and nitrite first.

The maroon clownfish will fight with the Ocellaris (common) clownfish.

Exclamation

Maroon clown was the last fish to go in tank he seems shy.
Also forgot to mention my first fish I put in a green chronis. They all seem to get along fine.

Welcome!

When I see a post like this first thought that comes to mind is someone has been watching tv
I hope there was enough live bacteria on the rock to jump in and help keep the ammonia and nitrites down. You will need to be prepared to do water changes, btw how much light do you have for the anemone? Do you have a friend that can take your livestock until your tank is cycled?

What's with the tv comment? If you read my other comments u will find out what lights I have. I have been living and breathing salt water the last three weeks and have been learning more each day!

There is a show in the USA that is called Thanked they make a tank and add fish right away, a lot of people I have seen at the LFS get the idea that is the way it should be done.
