    I wouldn't add any more for a while. It is best to add things slowly. Seven new fish in a month is a lot for a new system to handle.

    What fish did you get?

    Do you have any other equipment, such as a sump, protein skimmer, etc? What lighting do you have? If you can, post a picture.

    hello snail and welcome to masa nice to have you join:)

    anenome is right about going a little 'turbo' on that tank to be honest.

    if i understand you correctly the tank was set up around a month ago and in that time youve added 7 fish?

    normally tanks are left for around 2-3months without adding ANY fish so that the water can cycle and the bacterial populations breed up and handle the biological filtration for you. why not give us a pic of the tank and the sump and lets see if there is any advice we can give ya:)

    You may eventually have some issues with 3 clown fish. They are best kept in pairs, with one male and one female.

    Looking forward to pics.
