Yeah that'd be good but the ONLY problem you might run into is the black clown and the normal, I've seen them pair up tons of times but they usually fight alot before they actually get used to each other and the black one's are a little stringer than the normal do, I'm not saying you shouldn't do it but it might cause a little trouble until they get friendly with each other

Cool, I ended up going with two ocellaris clowns that have black fins. Five blue hermit crabs. Also got a mushroom frag and a Duncan frag. Didn't see any torch frags.

They said I was over kill on my lights. The cube has 25 3w LEDs. How should I use them. Should I acclimate them or ?

That's cool! Could I see a pic of the clowns you purchased?
What do they mean overkill?
Yes, definitely drip acclimate them, some people say you don't need to but I'd rather drip acclimate and take some time then lose a piece of coral! Even if it is just a small frag, money is money

My salinity is at 1.027 theirs was at 1.025. I am going to add some RO water. I dripped acclimated but I'm afraid it will hurt the coral or fish before I can get to the store to get the water.

Oh yeah those are pretty! These are mine! If you can't get water to lower the salinity 1.027 isnt too far off from what you need, they will be alright for the night until you can get some more to lower it...or just add freshwater?

Just run to the grocery store and buy two gallons of distilled water. Take a half gallon out of saltwater and add the distilled. Check your salinity. Repeat until at 1.025.

I think this stock is a little heavy. You may want to remove a fish or two.
