thanks you guys, i REALLY appreciate your help on this, you have no idea.
so i have the tank set up and it does not have just damsels like i thought.
there are 5 fish in there, one is a yellowtail damsel, the others i am working on ID's (sorry, no camera as yet). black with dorsal spots, black and white stripes, blue on electric blue, and a little black apisto looking thing. also a few little hermit crabs, a starfish and a little wavy looking thing that she said a peppermint shrimp will eat (not geting one, but good to know)
there are mushrooms, and a little coral thingy and the live rock is kinda awesome. The lady made me take home all of the water cos no one is open at night for salt water (thank you!!) and now the fish are swimming around happily. well they are staking out little territories.
There was only one powerhead, so i have added another one to avoid dead spots, and the HOB
filter will be replaced as soon as i have a few bucks to spare (next thursday... this is going to be worse than the cichlids, i can tell already lol)i was thinking a sump/ refugium (sp?)
SO for now, they will sit as is for the next few months so that they can settle and i can learn and then we will see where to from there... pics to follow
