Ya the cherub is Awsome but has to be the last fish added. They are the most aggressive out of my stocking list and the meanest are always the last ones added.

Yes, it's okay to mix the clowns just make sure one is bigger than the other. The larger clown will become the female.

Yes that's correct. Or you can purchase ammonia from ace hardware if there's one near you. It doesn't smell as bad as a raw table shrimp sitting decaying in your tank. Just make sure it doesn't bubble when you shake it.

Also if you haven't already invest in a liquid drop testing kit. I have one made by API and it measures ammonia ph nitrites and nitrates.

Best of Luck to your tank and son!

And the live sand n live rock will help it cycle to right? And the live rock wont get harmed by the cycling right? Sorry this maybe the dumbest question I've ever asked.

Also are goby's ok with more than one or r they better with just 1? The goby is my next research project. I have two pages about the clowns. Oh and i did get the tank n salt mix. Tmw im going to get live rock and get the ball on the road. Now for the shrimp do i jus let it decay all the way in there? Do i do no water change durring this time. And sould the cycle be done after the shrimp has decayed?

I would put the shrimp in some cut stockings tied at the top so it's easy to clean up, yes you just let it rot keep testing the water till you see the ammonia and nitrites at 0 and nitrates below or at 5.

I did water changes during my cycle but it isn't nessisary. Some would say it extends the cycle. The important part is that you test daily to see the Spike in ammonia which then will turn into nitrites and then nitrates. Once your nitrates read zero your cycle is complete. Keep you lights off as well it will prevent algae growth.
Put the rocks in then sand then water. This way when you get digging fish or inverts you won't have cave ins. It will be pretty cloudy but it will clear up.
What model tank did you get?
