With the hermit crabs and mushroom corals in there you definitely don't want to add any ammonia or you will just end up killing them. If the tank you got the rock from was already established and cycled then congratulations! You have a fully cycled tank!

I would start out by checking the ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate to see how they are and then you can look at adding your first fish. As for the stocking you want, I wouldn't put more than 4 fish into a 25g tank and some people will even argue that is getting to be a little much. The 2 Ocellaris, firefish or gramma, and the goby should be a good mixture for a tank with some good colors and movement.

I have been checking the levels twice a day since I've set it up and so far the levels look pretty good no ammonia no nitrites and a few nitrates. We went ahead and put a fire fish in yesterday and he is still doing great! Ate yesterday evening and ill feed him a little more today. Mushroom and hermits are still doing great and we even found a emerald crab in there to that's doing just fine.

Went out of town for 2 weeks and everything looks great! Water levels are good and added a goby. The fish store told me it was a bumblebee goby but I don't think it is does anyone have any ideas?

I think that little goby in the bottom picture to the right is a wheelers shrimp goby.
