The fish I'm picking for starters are Bangaii Cardinalfish, some Clownfish, a fire goby, some Turbo Snails and a couple of Emerald Crabs. Now let's see how this works. Fun fun and more fun!

That is 4 fish added at once?? Those are you initial fish? That seems like 2 too many for first fish. Need to give new tank time to adjust to fish. Fish produce good amount of ammonia and if not enough bacteria to convert from 4 fish you could see a spike.

Afraid that is the one for fresh water. If you go with that many fish to start you are not only going to kill several animals in your care but you are going to set yourself up for failure and be very frustrated. Hate to be so harsh but that is my opinion. Take it slow. If you do, you will enjoy this hobby and have a gorgeous tank. Only BAD things happen fast in this hobby.
