Aha??? I want to have a reef tank with 1 clown, 1 yellow & 2 blue tang, 1 fire fish, 2 cardinals & i want them all in smallest sz possible. If this can be done, lucky me if not.... I'll still prioritize the welfare of the fish. Btw, I have already 2 damsels 1 fire shrimo & 1 cleaner shrimp 5 turbo snails & 5 snail who goes under the sand dont know their name am I a hard-headed newbie getting them during cycle?

I don't think your tank is big enough. You need a 180g for the blue tangs alone and a 6 foot tank for the yellow ones.

My "duce bigallow" who happens to set up my tank used LR and the 2 damsels so this is straight I guess. Any better advice for a baby (atleast for this hobby) like me thanks in advance.

Oh, youre cycling with fish? Have you read the articles on here about fish in cycling?

You def shouldnt be adding any more fish until your cycle is complete. Do you have a liquid test kit for the water? If so what are the readings?

That's the thing. My reading for ammonia, nitrate, & nitrite were all 0, weird right? I tested it several times, the results were all the same. Ph is 8.8 3 days in a row.
