What would be the best way to introduce my new fish when I get them?

I started with 2 Chromis, I floated them for about an hour. One week later I did the same thing with 2 clowns

Good acclimation drip line. 30min to hour and they will be good to go.

That's the best way to do any kind of addition to the tank. It matches the temp, ph, salinity, all that good stuff. Makes it easier on the fish to acclimate to the tank

I would Definately look at some wrasse. I swear my tank could explode and the wrasse would walk upstairs to let me know. He would live through everything.

I always liked gobies and blennies. They have a lot of personality and are fun to watch. I would avoid the damsels. They are aggressive and very difficult to remove as stated already. I would also avoid serpent stars. I found out the hard way they can take out a lot of your fish (they are fun to watch though). I miss my salt water tank. The best part is watching all the little critters that come out of the live rock (fireworms excluded).

A two-column tank is a tank with a stupid little brace in the middle I'm not really sure why the brace is there as it is a flimsy little piece of plastic and doesn't really do much.
