So I had everything tested and there is still tht small mount of ammonia .24 ppm or whatever very very low I was thinking of adding either 2 turbo snails or 1 turbo and 1 demsal after I test my water again tomorrow and if its alright do you think it's safe to add ?

I would wait for 0 ammonia and if it was me I wouldn't get a damsel - they are nasty and hard to remove when you don't want em anymore...

Yeah, try not to add too much clean up crew early, they won't have a lot to eat until you start adding fish. What kind of livestock were you thinking? Did I ask before is it going to be reef or fowler?

It's a fowlr this is first time ever I'm not sure what livestock I'm going to go with. Wanted possibly a lionfish setup but I figured that was advanced category.

Yeah unfortunately lionfish are too big for your set up. Check out liveaquaria.com for fish sizes and compatibility. While your cycling its the perfect time to research your stock list and their needs...

The little research I have done I think ill put a turbo snail in there a clown fish pair dragnet. Goby and some shrimp for starters and go from there think I might try a starfish As well maybe a blenny and a crAb and go from there people keep telling me to add raw shrimp for the cycle and that seems stupid to me and damsels I have heard bad stories of them for beginner fish just like in the previous post

Cycling with a raw shrimp is the better way to do it, with a fish is cruel even if damsels are mean! I would wait for the dragonet, they would need an established tank and are difficult eaters.go for the clowns first up, can't go wrong
