Almost Completely Cycled Tank

What would you recommend for a newly cycled FOWLR Tank, as far as CUCs are concerned? It's a 55g tank.

Have you decided on the fish you want? Some fish eat shrimp & crabs. Just a thought.

By your avatar you might be interested in clowns? A pair of clowns are a good "newbie" start.

Sounds good but after a little research, Damsels look like a hardier fish.

Clowns are just as hardy IMO. I would stay away from the damsels if you plan on buying any fish in the future because they are aggressive.

Yeah I know but not in comparison to blue damsels whatsoever in my book to be honest they are so much more peaceful and you can add other fish down the road.
