was saying with him giving me the sand the live rock and also the water he said I could put in the fish right away is this true.
Yes you need to monitor salinity, water evaporates and leaves behind salt causing salinity to rise. You need to do daily top offs with ro
water to maintain the proper level. You'll also need a larger tank for a pair of clowns, something more in the 15-20 gallon range. No you don't need a cuc, they don't really clean they just add to the bio load, the cleaning is your job with your weekly water changes and maintenance. And no, your lfs
is misleading you, you still need to cycle the tank before adding fish to it.
