Do your weekly waterchange and you should be fine things to watch out for would be overstocking and overfeeding

If you do get a clown goby, I couple things to note. They hide a lot and are not very active swimmers, but they will have a relationship with acropora which is kinda cool. They are also small and hide a lot.

Id put in a green banded goby and a cleaner shrimp.

I have a freshwater edge and I've thought about converting it to a saltwater tank. However I've yet to do it bc: 1. The lack of sufficient light to grow any coral (even though there are mods to do it), 2. Cleaning the tank if there was any major outbreak of algae; especially coralline. You'd have to take everything out to do a good cleaning job. 3. Very limited stocking options. Most fish you can put in there spend most of their time hiding. Some ppl have put a clown in there but I can't see one in there after it fully grows.
