Everything looks good, and most of your equipments looks like the typical good equipment . Before the radion fanboys come in, i'm going to recommend the reeffi UNO 2.0 Pro light. It has more PAR and a similar spectrum balance to the radions for almost half the price. They also have a 3 year warranty, where the radions only have a one year warranty :).
Also, on the topic of adding more anemones, In my experience, different species of anemones will end up killing each other. I had a black widow for a while with RBTA's, and it slowly withered away while the BTA's did great.

Well 2 of the clownfish are in a constant fight. Any tips to settle them down?

Am I reading that you have 2 pairs of clowns in a 25g tank? That's not going to end well at all. I'd suggest rehoming one of the pairs, or you'll end up with a dominant female, a dominant male and two dead clowns.

As for PAR... That's a topic of widely varied discussion. I feel like if you aimed for about 175-ish on the top of your rocks, everything could find a happy place in there.

I bought 4 baby clowns and looking to see what happens. They are all probably 1/2”

Little photo update
tank will be moved soon once I finish the stand. Finally got the granite for the top of the cabinet.
I really need to get the lighting situation figured out. The two primes just look really messy and awkward above the tank
Also anyone have any advise for cable management on the backs of these AIO?

Nice marble. For lighting and cable management get a used XR15 with the arm. Cable hides in the arm

I had mine over a 40g breeder frag tank. It worked for me. You should look at reviews for it. Someone with your size tank can give you a better viewpoint.

Added the other 2 chicagos now that the tank is in its final spot. Also some close ups of the 2 sexy shrimp. There’s a few more hermits and snails now
