Your ph is ok it's a bit high but nothing to worry about urchins need algae and the mandarin need tons of pods which your hermits will wipe out rather quickly I would say your pretty well maxed on stock.

Haha you have such a long time to figure that out! Personally I didn't plan my stock until the time came and even now it's still changing. It's nice to have a general idea of what you want, but really take your time and be patient!

Patience is the key to saltwater aquariums! I say wait at least a month or so. If the fw tests you found don't work, maybe your LFS will test your water for you. You can always change stock ideas later.

It suggested that to have a mandarin goby, you need a tank with at least 75 lbs of live rock that has been established no less than a year and a half. They're really pretty fish, but they should be left in the ocean IMO. They're hard to feed and keep alive. Most dragonets are that way. (Mandarin goby isn't really a goby, it's a dragonet.)

Agreed! You can put everything in your tank in that bin with a power head and then reseal the tank. Basically your making the bin a tank until your actual tank is ready to be used again.
