Time to start thinking about fishes & corals

Params were good, got a small issue wit salt that will be taken care of shortly... What kind of fish & corals should I look into getting first, don't think that I should get anything to expensive cause is still need to get the hang of what to do going forward...any thoughts for a started crew for fish and corals that will be hardy enough to handle any early ,intakes that I may do?

Tank size
Lighting type.
Future expectations of tank?

In order to give you helpful suggestions on coral and fish, we need to know your specific info

I would start with a pair of clowns there very hardy and adaptable to changes
I would wait on corals a bit and make sure u have really good lighting
For clean up crew u could start with some snails and hermit crabs and a shrimp if u want

Went to my life stock store...ask for sturdy and peaceful fish to start... They recommended chromis and damsels...were they wrong? I have 1 of the damsel choking away at the other what r my options? Don't think that it will last too much

I personally don't feel that damsels are a wise choice for ANY tank. although a lot of times they start out small and peaceful, they usually turn aggressive and angry once older. they are great for helping to stabilize a new tank but that's it.
