I think you're good with any order on those two fish. The firefish will jump, but I see you have a top.

It's fairly well covered, there is a ~1.5 inch open space along the back for the filter, heater, etc. I'll get a piece of plexiglass to cover that up.

A better way would be with eggcrate as this would allow gas exchange so that your ph would be more stable.

We're on the home stretch! There is a serious diatom bloom going on, but that's a good thing yes? Going to order some small crabs/snails and my Firefish on Monday

I'd wait up on ordering your CUC and fiefish until your nitrites are at 0 & your nitrates start showing up. That way you can do a really large water change and not have to worry about killing your CUC and firefish. I'm talking about a 50% water change.

Well if I order them Monday, they will arrive Tuesday.

Judging from the rate so far, Nitrites will be 0 tomorrow and Nitrates are already showing up (20 ppm). So I plan to do a big water change on Monday to get rid of all the Nitrate, and then everything should be good to go for Tuesday.

Obviously I'm not going to order if the tank isn't ready. All I'm saying is that it looks like it will be ready by Monday.
