It is recommended to only have 1 pair of clownfish in a tank, anymore than that will cause aggression between them. This is more than likely what is causing the stress.

It is pretty well documented that in captivity if you have more than 2 clownfish that eventually they will kill each other off until only 2 are left. Are they all ocellaris? Are they all about the same size?

They are ocellaris , one ocellaris b/w, one misbar clown .
There's thin white layer hanging out of the skin.
Its a 72gal with a lot of rocks for them to hide.
Any help are appreciated.

Ok, you get two clowns of the same species in one tank unless you have a LARGE tank which you do not. Otherwise, they will eventually kill each other.
