Here is a pic of a 10 gallon qt tank. Its basically a bare bottom tank with a heater, trickle filter and PVC for the fish to hide in.
Perfect islolation tank for treating ailments or for a 4 week observation period before adding the fish to your main to be assured no disease make it that far.

What is your water turn over (gph)? Is it possible that the fish aren't getting enough O2? How big are each of your fish? Do the fish appear any better/worse after the water changes? Are you using RO/DI or tap for your saltwater?

Hmm I am not sure on my GPH or even how to figure that out. I know that I have an algea problem but I don't know if it is a big problem or not. I clean the glass almost every day to every two days because algea has grown again, and there is some on the rocks but the coral beauty eats a lot of that. I don't know about the O2 I figure if it was on oxygen problem they would be trying to get air near the top of the tank, but they stay at the very bottom behind the rocks. My Coral beauty is about 2.5-3 inches, 1 clown is 1 inch and the other is 1.5 inches. I use tap water, and I add a water conditioner that removes ammonia chlorine and Chloramine from the water. After the water change I did yesterday there doesn't seem to be any change at all better or worse. I really don't know if anything is wrong at all but the fast breathing was my first concern.

The pumps that I have have a GPH rating on them (ie my return pump is a mag12 rated for 1200gph at 0 head, but at 4' that drops down to 1130). The O2/flow was just a thought given the fact that the sabae's can each get to 6" and the coral beauty 4". Full grown that would be 16" of fish in a 29g tank so I just wanted to explore that angle. What brand of test kit are you using for your tests?

ya I can't find anything that states the gph. My tank is kind of a beginner tank and doesn't have anything to fancy. I use fasTest test kit.

Thank you for all of your advice. I think my clowns are going to be alright.. They a still breathing a little fast I think (but I get a little paranoid sometimes) but no spot or visible problems. I also tried the mysis/peas thing (they love it, thank you for that idea I think I am going to continue with it because they like it so much) and I saw some feces and it was greenish brown so I am guessing thats a good thing. They also seem to be swimming around more not so much hiding behind the rocks. Thanks again.
