I would get the fire fish first. If he is introduced into the system and his bioload doesnt shock the system or cause any spikes then awesome, 3 weeks later i would suggest adding both clowns at the same time to avoid agression. Problem with adding 2 fish at the same time to a brand new system is that their bioload could cause spiles and kill them both. I dont like to risk that stuff

this all depends on how you cycled the tank, if you dosed to 3-4 ppm ammonia & it drops in 24 hrs you can pretty much add your full bioload right off the bat.. but i wouldn't recommend putting in clowns before a firefish anyways. they'll claim the tank & terrorize the little guy.

ok so just a slight bit of confusion... will the coral attach itself to the rock or will i have to glue it down? my hermit is to curious as to what is in its tank that it makes it close up and this last time knocked it off of it area just as i turned the lights out!

Yeah, hermits and snails can do that. Happened to mine pretty often, but having them on a plug like yours will help. They will eventually spread onto the rocks around them. There shouldn't be a need to glue the plug or the coral down. Just pin the frag plug between a couple rocks and you will be good to go.

U could keep chalices under that light. Mine barely need anylight. I keep them in the corner of my tank shaded. In my experience flourescent bulbs are best for them.
