You have way to many fish and corals in there for a 15 gallon tank.

My goby, though it a watchman, won't touch mysis. Now give him a chuck of shrimp or scallop and he disappears for 30 minutes while he and his pistol buddy chow down. Actually, hardly anyone touches the mysis. My last batch of food I tried chopping them up a bit and still nothing. Even the trigger lets them float right on by. I swear I spoiled them on the shrimp and scallops. Gonna be freezer cleaning time soon.

Yes, but you have to look at the area. SW fish tend to stake out an area so they have enough room to survive in . Clowns stake out a 4'x4' area and will defend that area to the death. As you can see an 1" per gallon just don't cut it...Also remember that clowns are Damsels and can be very nasty.

thanks for the advice. my tank is a classic tank rather than a bio cube probably doesnt matter but i thought i'd mention it. i've notice the clowns have picked a rock on the right as there 'house' and the firefish has its cave in the middle and the shrimp on the left mainly. and the little goby doesnt seem to mind. so i should look out for it getting nasty? gutted to here all that i wanted a peaceful happy tank and id got the fish i wanted and it how i wanted it.

just monitor the tank and if you have to try rearranging some of the rockworks.
