So I put in a small chunk of shrimp to get ammonia going

But anyway, im starting to think about fish so I know what I want/can have. I want one clown for sure and I like bangaii cardinals and that would occupy the top/middle of the tank. I also really like the spotted mandarin goby but after some research it looks like that's not a good idea. So any other suggestions? And then once I figure out what fish I want I need to figure what order I will put them in the tank. Any input would be appreciated

How about a yellow watchman goby or a firefish? I have both and they are cool fish.

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

I was thinking about a yellow watchman goby, they seem like they have fun personalities
What would be a good fish to start with?

You can start with just a firefish or whatever you like.

Yep, just window shop and you'll come across some neat fish. If you ahven't already check out Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums They have a nano section so you can look at appropriate fish for your tank.

So I have a question. Does it make a difference if the shrimp I put in to help cycle it is part cooked? Haha I just realized it came precooked

Any idea what those tiny little grey dots on the shrimp are. They are moving around and they are everywhere on the tank sides
