Like they said the HS crab is not a good idea. If you went with some smaller clowns I don't think your too bad. I would wait on most of the fish until you got the extra LR and sump set up. do you have a skimmer? Fuge??

I would add more LR before adding too many more fish. Fish need a hiding place to call home and if you have more fish the hiding places you will have fighting over territory.

I should correct myself - loose the crab. With that, I think you're good except, as said earlier, you're at the edge and maybe the attention to maintainance might not be worth it.

Maybe you could adjust your choice on the clarkie . Hawkfish are cool but keep in mind, they're not easy. That combined with he bioload leads to constant attention.

Yes, loose the crab, dog. 8)
