Guess what guys?!?!!?!?!?!!?
I'm done cycling. Ok this may not seem like a very big deal to most of you guys, but this is my first tank and I waited 4 weeks for this. It's hard to wait that long when it's your first time. My ammonia and nitrite levels have fallen to undetectable levels and my PH
is 8.2 and my salinity is 1.023.
Can I get some recommendations on fish for a first timer? I have a 20 gallon tank and I want to eventually create a reef and have corals but I am working slowly on it. I still need to buy lighting and build my sump. So I will start working on a reef in about 1-2 months.
I was thinking of getting:
- 2 clownfish (mated pair)
- 2 skunk cleaner shrimp
I already have:
- 1 damsel (LFS
told me to cycle with damsel, 1 damsel died, I learned the hardway not to cycle with fish)
- 4 tiny hermit crabs
Do you think this is too much? I'm kind of worried about the clownfish and the damsel but I think 2 clownfish can take a damsel any day (as for the damsel, I don't give a **** what happens to it, I'm nice I know)
So what do you guys think? I need some suggestions....
Oh yeah, btw
, I'm low on money so don't recommend something over expensive ($50+).
