I did the tests again this morning and the tests read 0ppm for ammonia 0ppm for nitrite, and it looks like either 5ppm or 10ppm nitrate.
Feed some fish food or something and make for certain the cycle is completed.

Ok, so I fed the tank for the past 5 days with no change to the parameters. So last night I went to the lfs and picked up 10 hermit crabs and a true percula clownfish.
I put the hermits into the display tank and the clown into my 10g quarantine tank.
I figured I will feed the hermits every other day and watch my levels and if everything is good in about a week-10days ill add the clown. I should get my new light around then also.

Can anyone else suggest an order to add the fish I have below. I figured I would add one every 2-3 weeks until I get 4 in the tank and then add 1 ever month or so as the tank matures.

1. trupercula clownfish
-mandarine
marine Betta
yellow diamond gobie
Banggai Cardinal
fairy wrasse
flame angel

any suggestions would be great.

Thanks,
Joe

Thats a pretty specific list. Good to see you have a pod population going already. Itll set you up well for the future mandarin. Im not sure about the wrasse or angel. The angel will eventually nip corals.

The mandarin, if you decide to get one should be the very last one introduced so that you have a chance at keeping it alive.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
