Dont get a damsel to cycle the tank. Read this on why.

Cycle your salt tank

I questioned that. I said i didnt wanna hurt it or kill it but he said your not gonna kill it. So him being the man that owns the pet store I done what he said. i did put 6 ghost shrimp in there also 3 of which are dead now.

So to correct this I did start a 5 gallon tank from this tank a few days after i started it for a qt if i need it. with that being said should i wait for an ammonia spike and take the little guy out and put in the small tank til reading right on the big tank. because the small tank is days behind the big one and the fish has been in the big one since friday the small tank only has live sand and a small live rock right now

Not sure about the red thing but the brown think is aptasia. I would get that rock out and get it off since you are just starting.

If you can take the rock out just use a lighter and burn it off the rock. How many post on this do you have?
