    thats far too many clown species there. one species and two clowns at most or they will fight. i would worry about the sea hare too, if it gets into a pump you'll be sorry cause it will get shredded and kill everything:( your tangs sound fine, even though its all temporary its still bad for the 6foot aswell. sorry. looking forward to the pics:)

    okay so i should split up the clowns then.
    2 x clarks in my 4 ft and the others in the 6ft... would that be alright.
    the sea hare is huge almost as big as the palm of my hand.

    no. you can keep a pair or a single clown in each tank. no mixing it up. you might get away with two species in the 6Foot but you are tempting fate. so i would suggest keeping one pair in each tank only. i really think you should get rid of your hare, its gonna be a problem soon. you should split all the clowns up asap, but the bioload seems fine, but it depends, how much live rock do you have and whats skimmer do you have?
