Too many animals, too fast. Please read (and accept) Cmor's advice above. All ignoring advice will get you is frustrated with a lighter wallet. Not to mention all the fish and inverts that will be killed because of YOU not being patient enough even after advised correctly.

That said i think you should also slow down the fish adding..it could result in an algae outbreak...or worse, the tank could crash :O

I got the clownfish for free it is a male that is 2.5 years old.

I hope you remember this. Everything you do in this hobby should be carefully researched and spread out. If you can, take him back or set up a separate system for him, and start reading the hundreds of articles on how to "train" these fish on to frozen or prepared foods. Know that this will take a huge amount of your time and money, and he still could not do it and die. I tried one in my 2 year established 90 gallon and the poor thing still didn't make it. They are an extremely finicky fish. We have a recent article written on it that you should start with.

I'd save your breath guys. He has ignored everyone's advice in numerous other threads and clearly will continue to do so as he is completely ignoring cmor's comments about the fish. It's sad really, inevitably the tank will crash and all the poor fish will die.

+1 to you. Couldn't have said it better and you beat me to it. What else...oh yeah we should have seen this coming. Or I figured this would happen.

Its only a matter of time, probably some young feller that doesn't like taking advice. It all looks pretty now doesn't it, but just wait, it'll be gone here shortly....

I mean I don't want to keep dwelling on this guy, but he keeps asking for advice and low and behold, he goes the other direction. Like I told him in one of his (many) threads, you don't come to a forum, especially one called aquariumadvice.com looking for advice, and don't take it when you get good advice.
