Pretty New too saltwater..

I recently aquired a Red Sea Max 130D from my Uncle for FREE! Pretty sweet huh? I had a basic tank setup so I have 2 blue damsels (have been together for a LONG time and get along fairly well) that i introduced into the new tank.

So, my question is, what fish would u reccomend? Im interested in wrasses and Gobies, also Longnose Hawkfish?
I want interesting fish but i understand i problably need mostly basic fish like Chromis.
I plan to slowly introduce corals after a few months.

as for fish check here for ideas

just be sure what you choose that it's reef safe and compatible and be sure that they don't exceed your tank size

I am assuming the tank is running with all parameters set. If you want corals, stay away fron eel, anemone, and some starfish. If fish only, then could almost almost have anything u want, except comparable issue.

If you add the damsels last they might not be aggressive with new stock. False percula clownfish maybe?

Clown fish are also damsels. You can keep damsels but they can be bullies when ever you had a new fish, remove the damsels an redo a bit of rock work, so their territory is broken up. Don't do anything like fire fish it any other fish that is prone to jumping out of stress. You need fish with q bit of attitude to keep with them. Ilike damsels an was considering one for my tank but instead I got a 6 line wrasse.

You start adding coral, make sure your light is up to it. Also start out with a fairly easy coral such as a pulsing xena, mushrooms, or a green star polyp so you can get into the swing of things with the coral
