UPDATE... Well I got lucky and a little unlucky. My ammonia and nitrites are at 0 and nitrates are holding at 15 ish. Bad news is that blue damsel turned out to be a serial killer. So I caught the damsel in my tank full of LR ( and remember I'm a newbie, so I'm feeling like a fish superhero after that!) and I just have 3 of the chromis, which are so much fun to watch. I'm slowly slowly slowly acclimating a few snails and a cleaner shrimp as I type. I'll hold off adding any other fish for a while, after having to catch a fish, I don't want to put anything in that tank that may have to come out!
** In the long run, I really want an anemone and clown, any suggestions regarding which of both I may have the best luck with? Also, am I better off waiting til I find a clown & anemone at a FS that appear to be bonded already? Or should 1 be introduced in the tank before the other? I won't even think about getting the anemone for months just to be careful. Thanks!

I thought the damsel would be a problem. Glad you got him.
