Talking 29 Gal. Update with pic

This is day 8. Amonia levels peaked and have fallen off. Nitrites and Nitrates have kicked in and on the rise. I have added a small circulation pump in the tank to help avoid dead spots and increase circulation. Between the tank filter and pump I am moving about 500 GPH with total water volume of about 25 gals with water displacement of the rock and substrate.

Problem: The 2 T5s fixture is unsafe IMO> It shorted and sparked and on investigation the original owner of the tank did not use water resistant end caps. Sheesh! Salt water and electrical who would have thunk? I am looking into a replacement fixture now and am considering an LED add on. Pics below.

Well I am gonna add a cleaner Crew and a Jewel Damsel fist.
A few weeks after that I am adding a Yellow Stripe Maroon Clown and a purple back Psuedochromis.

Lastly I would like to have a flame angel if all is going well for a total of 4 fish max in this tank I think. I will forgo the Psuedochromis if the tank will only support 3 fish. All species are considered semi aggresive so I hope they will all hold their own.
