I was definitely going to wait a few days. I won't be able to go to the lfs until Tuesday at the earliest anyways. And I plan on testing every day to make sure. Plus, the light fixture wouldn't be here until later this week, if it makes it this week at all.

We started with some frags after our 20 gallon cycled, but I don't see why you couldn't add a small fish. The only issue I see is that your first fish in should probably be the yasha goby because of its small size and mild temperament (I've always been told to add the least aggressive fish first, and so on). The problem there is that the yasha will likely be your most expensive fish, and possibly the most difficult to find. Ours was first in but we waited until about 2 months after the tank cycled to add him. Starting with cheap frags and watching how they did made us more comfortable with adding him. If your tank is cycled, though, there's no reason not to add a small fish.

Yeah, the Yasha will probably be the most expensive. Good point about it being the mildest temperament too. Didn't think about the order I should add them.

Could I add the Clownfish first, then the Yasha you think? The LFS had a b/w clown a couple weeks ago, so I'm assuming its something they keep in stock. Not sure if they have or can get the Yasha though. I may end up ordering it online somewhere. I can always wait though. But, if I decide to go look and they have the Clown but not the Yasha, I know I'll be tempted....lol.

I'm gonna wait a bit to add some snails too. I don't have algae yet, so there isn't anything for them to eat just yet. I'll wait a couple weeks and see then if I think they'll do ok.

Tested my water again this afternoon and the results are:

ammonia: 0
nitrite: 0
nitrate: 25
pH 7.8
phosphate: 0.5

Updated tank pic (I need to top off ):


I ordered my light fixture last night. So hopefully it will come sometime this week.

try acrylic paint for the background. then you can get any color you want. I did mine in black but there is a great dark blue that is very nice.

I think you could probably add the clown and then the goby. I assume you're going to start with a small one like we did. Ours doesn't pay any attention to the other fish and yours probably won't either.

Looks great. I want to see the new light on there. I see lots of dry rock, but is there any live rock in them DT?
