Actually here is my stock so far..

I think its a 4 strip damsel...
http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...cfm?pCatId=106

YellowTail
http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...cfm?pCatId=134

Domino
http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...cfm?pCatId=102

The Domino just stays in hiding rigtht now and only comes out of the rocks when i feed them. The YT and the Striped Damsels "Explore" the tank. They found routes through the rocks I didnt even realize fish could get through. The YT likes to sit inside that Bowl Looking rock I have in there next to the gargoyle. Pretty cool to watch!

Cool, you may have troubles in the future when adding other fish. You'll have to get other agressive or larger fish. What future plans do you have?

Well, My next goal is to get some different lights. After I get new lights I am betting I will want to get some EASY corals. From what I have gathered most corals need an established tank and are not to happy about smaller tanks because of the magnitude of water quality deviations. I would really like to have a Coral Beauty at some point but they pick at Corals from what I have read. I was also hoping to get some of the charactors from NEMO but I dont think thats going to be possible with this small of a tank.. (PLus I have the damsels in there now) The chart on Live Aquaria says Clowns are Compatible with Damsels but from what I have heard Damsels are pretty mean little buggers! The clown would be my 1st pick tho. (Just cause the kids would LOVE it)

Clowns are damselfish as well. I had a Yellow Stripe Maroon in with 5 damsels and they never bothered him (but they are the more agressive of the clowns and should be housed in at least a 30G tank).

Sweetness - Maybe I will try to add a clown after a while then. That would be the end of my stocking as 4 fish would probably be PLENTY of bioload for my tank...

I am going to take the AirStones out. Exactly like you guys suggested they are becoming an issue. I will add another PH at some point but for right now my water flow is 320GPH plus whatever the Skimmer moves... Should I move my PH to the top of the tank? I have the HOB AC50 thats moving water and breaking the surface? I was thinking that PH in the middle of the tank and the HOB for moving water @ the surface..

The HOB probably is doing a good enough job for a stable pH, (testing will deny or confirm this). You polace ment sounds good. Watch for dead spots and you can always mor your phs. I have 3 in my 55.

Well - everything in the tank seams to be doing really well. The Domino Damsel has started to explore the tank more and more. Maybe he just had to warm up to his new home. I have to make a short trip out of town so they will be missing 1 evening feeding and 2 morning feedings. Hopefully they do not starve during this time.. Wish I had an auto feeder for the weekend. grrrr

I feed every other day, they should be fine. I have seen mine eat algae off of the glass.
