25 reef fish

Hey, I'm cgthebeast and I'm starting a 25 gallon reef. This tank is not cycled yet and I'm still setting it up. I have a 120 gph aqua- tech hob filter and I'm planning on adding a 10 refrigum later this year and a skimmer. have went to live aquaria and looked at fish suggestions, but I want personal suggestion. I want fish that a small bio load. Shrimp, crabs, or anything else too.

Thank you for your help

I would get a pair of designer clowns. Dominos, snowflakes, Picasso, whichever you like. Then build from there. Perhaps a handful of crabs, and a blenny.

Picasso and snowflakes are beautiful, so are the black ice. I was thinking about a pair, but with me starting out with a small tank, I want to get a variety of 3 different fish. I like the fire fish and will probably get one if those.

Yeah I was going to stock up on seaweed strips so it sounds like a good choice though it would be awhile before I could get it. I ordered dry base rock after reading up on serval pest that sound more like reef nightmares.

Not true, they will also eat bloodworms. Not always the case, but they will. Mine goes nuts for them.

They are omnivores, but they get about 5". A bit large for a 25 IMO.

Bicolor blennies are nice.
