Supplies for first fish...

been a bit distracted on the other money pits in my life (house, motorcycles, woodworking, etc) and i have put off stocking my tank... or you could say i have been cycling for an extremely long time

what food, meds, supplements, etc should i have on hand for my first fish. im probalby going to get a goby (to hang out with my pistol shrimp) or a black clown (or maybe a maroon clown).

ive been tossing my pistol shrimp (in my QT) a bit of frozen shrimp every so often, but i will be moving him to the main tank when i get a fishy...

anyway, enough rambling... any suggestions.
