How can I calm my sebae clown down. Last night his anemone closed up for some reason and my clown has been going nuts. He keeps trying to get in it and he also keeps banging himself off of rocks. Its realy odd I have never seen any fish act this way and I am afraid he's going to get to stressed.

Lol jay I guess I should be a bit more careful how I write things because most people don't go by chemical make up.
NO2 = nitrite
NO3 = nitrate
NH3/NH4 = ammonia

You should have NO ammonia and no nitrite.... The tank is going through another cycle... It may be caused by adding new stuff to the tank....
