Best to start slow. Id add a few snails to start for the CUC. A tailspot blenny might make for a good first fish. They dont get big. They arent aggressive. And they eat algae! They are also very pretty and very personal. Mine loves to stare at me. If I hide from him, he will swim out and look for me. They love to perch on the rocks.

I too would start off with a small clean up crew. Few snails. Maybe a clown fish. I would hold off on the corals for about 6 months. Give your tank time to stabilize.

clown fish if you must have a fish. blennies and gobies really like an older tank even if they are eating well. it is all about fish happiness right? my first fish was a 6 line wrasse which is still may fav. Despite what other people say he is the most docile fish I have ever seen and actually hides from new fish.
