you'd get more responses making another thread about it, but im willing to be the anemone died, killing your other fish. anemones are not easily kept in captivity.

that leads me to add something to the list, anemones. no scientific name specific, just nems in general.

did you check the alk of the tank? as well as other minerals? it's odd that clowns would die though, they are extremley hardy fish as with the other 3 damsels. where'd you get your source water from?

one more thing to ask,
can you give a full list of your parameters for the tank?
alk
SG
Nitrates
Nitrites(if any)
Phosphates
Ammonia(if any)
Calcium
also do you have any hair algae or algae of anykind in the tank?
