o yeah I forgot....

next week I should be able to put and invert/fish in my tank. I'll test my water and see if its all right, and if it is I'm set. Very Happy

Now, stocking questions.
I'd like to put either a...
Firefish
Percula Clownfish
Clown Goby
Blue Damsel

I really liked the small Percula Clowns they had at the pet store, they were a yellow color with white stripes. This would be my first choice if its OK.

What'd be best? Confused

I'd go with a Blue Devil damsel Great fish lots of personality and awesome blue color. Also they are super hardy great first fish.

probably some blue legged hermit crabs. I'm not sure how many to put in there though. how many would be OK?

So here is my stocking idea so far:
Blue Devil Damsel
Blue Legged Hermit Crabs

What would be best to get first? Or doesn't it matter?

thanks

Hermits first with a few snails as a clean up crew. I'd top out at 5 snails and 5 hermits. give that 2 weeks see how it goes then get your damsel. Once its all cycled of course

well today I went to the petstore and bought some Alkaline Buffer to raise my pH. I think it was at 7.4, otherwise it was really good. Smile next week I'm going to see if its high enough to get some crabs. what kind of snails could I put in there?

today I also saw a firefish, that really started to change my ideas in which fish I wanted.

which one? firefish or blue devil damsel?
