I think you may have too many clownfish in there. Have they shown any aggression towards each other? Also, the amount of fish you can put depends on what type of fish.

If they are getting along you will be fine. Taking one species out would just be necessary if one species is bullying another. Usually Black and Ocellaris clowns get along well though

Are any of the orange clowns paired up? If they are, I would take out the lone one since they may start picking on him.

Yea they seem to keep there distance only really come together DINNER TIME, but it's a group of three and a group of 2, if snapping occurs should I take out the aggressive one? And besides the clowns do you think it's to many fish in this tank?

Does it look crowded? The only fish I think will get too big for the tank is the blue tang, other than that you're good. You might even be able to add a fish or 2 depending how big they get.
