questions agian!

I tested everything agian tonight.

Ammonia- 0

I am guessing this was a quick cycle due to LR and LS. Now can I add some cleaning crew and take one damsel back? I wanna keep the blue one for another month before I actually get a clown. Also seeing as I am only going to have 1 clown as my fish in this tank What kind and how many cleaners should I get. I have 2 snails but they rarely show themselves. I want a shrimp and a crab for sure. also at what point should I add a mushroom. I am making a canopy this weekend, it will house 2 13w powercompact 50/50(6700k/actonic) and 2 15 watt flourescent 10k lamps. Is this enough light for a shroom considering the tank is only 12.5 deep, and how high can I make the canopy. I was shooting for 6 in from water top will this hurt my light penatration. I have plexiglass cover between lights and water.

previous cycle info:

Shrooms don't need a ton of light, so you should be ok there. If you add cleaning crew, do it slowly, a 10gal tank is tiny, and can rapidly develop problems with ammonia/nitrite levels if stocked too quickly, even when using cured live rock...which you are short on since you went with a lot of dead rock. dead rock really needs a good 6 weeks to get fully colonized by bacteria.
