Have set the tank up - seller kindly delivered to me with about 25% of the mature water. Have now after 2 nights finally made enough RO water to fill! everything seems to be working fine and the clown seems lively enough. Little growths and critters appearing from rock! Worm like creatures that kind of look like a grey caterpillar are coming in and out and little coral like things are appearing too. I am going to make sure everything stable before adding any fish. There is 2 hermit crabs in there and 2 snails. My lights are coming on monday. Any advice?
