What to buy??

I am just about done cycling my tank, what are some suggestions of livestock that are a must have ? Should I build my cleaning crew before I buy fish? Any suggestions would be awesome !

There's really no need for a clean up crew until they have something to clean up . Are you planning on adding corals and fish ?

You should be good on the lightning , I had good luck with some branching hammers and a few zoos while I got my routine down. I would suggest holding back on buying those expensive pieces for the first six months at least .

+1 +1 +1. Could not agree more.
The likelihood of your corals bleaching is very high since the tank is so new. I would say at least 60 days before going on a coral shopping spree.
