Well the tank has been running for 3 months. The clowns get along great, they all stay in a group. If I put my hand in the tank. Then the black and white clowns start ramming my hand, especially when I get close to the anemone.

I know that the tank is not mature enough, but my roommates decided to surprise me while I was away for a couple days. The only thing I had in the tank was cleaner shrimp and snails. So someone told me to put in a bottle of bacteria.

I couldn't take anything back because they don't allow returns on fish.

The Levels are
PH - 8.2
Ammonia - 0
Nitrites - 0
Nitrates - 0
Salt - 1.025
temp 77.4

The anemone has doubled in size, it's crazy.
