I have two of these snails, what am I suppose to feed them?

The only change I made to that guide is I use t5 lighting because I quarantine my corals as well.

They don't have black and white but they do have black n white saddlebacks and the "regular" orange and white clowns.

I also got a teeny- tiny yellow watchman goby, already named Paul Blart , 2 turbo snails and a cleaner shrimp.

They are all acclimating right now. Do I need to make a run to town for another clown?

Not exactly sure what to do here! Help!
I don't recommend mixing different morphs (color) of clowns.

Thanks Greg! My original clown jumped tank along with my yellow watchman. I replaced him with another just like him then found a little bitty one to go with. I now have the 2 clowns and a bicolor blenny.

Most of the other fish I like are angels but the guidelines say to add them last. If everything says to add them last, I'm not really sure what I can add next!

Please share your thoughts about buying fish online vs at a LFS. Any vendors you trust and use?

I only ordered fish from live when i was ordering online but now I get them from distributor. Live was on the spot never lost from them almost forget this spot I had also used Nyaquatic they are good also they had some good prices. The big difference to me was you can't see you fish before you by man made me remember one more spot clownaquatic got some custom clowns from them for my first setup with them you see the same fish you are paying for they have videos of them.

Maintenance day question: should I use a gravel vac like I use in fresh water to stir things up a bit and get the waste up off the sand?
