Got inpatient

So I was assured by my LFS that my live rock was cycled (I did pick it out of the tank myself) and that with the live sand I have I should be ok with my cycling. So 3 days ago I went to get my clownfish but they didn't have any. Do I opted for damsels instead. I have to say I'm pretty happy. And I was assured that my clownfish are compatible with the damsels. I was told to wait 2 weeks before I put any coral in so now it's a waiting game. Also added a reef back ground. Not sure if looks tacky or not. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Damsels are mean as[moderator edit]There gona lay clame to your tank and be aggressive to what ever you put in next. Test you water before you add coral too. I couldnt wate when I first got started and put a frog spawn coral in and I could actually see it die. I dont think it lasted a day.

Are you planning on keeping the damsels? Like stated above you might have issues with adding fish after them.

Tank looks good though, not tacky from what i can see.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Just keep your eyes on them. Damsels are pretty fish but they come with a nasty attitude. LOL You may get lucky and have mellow ones.
