just 1..he def swims a bit funny lol..

is the tank cycled..id say yes.. all my levels are correct according to my strips and hydrometer.

im gonna wait a few weeks but then start looking for a couple new community friendly fish as long as these guys stay healthy. Looking for something colorful and intresting that would get along with clown,domino,4 stripe,blue damesel. Any suggestions?

First off, you got all damsels in there and as they grow you will be having territorial problems. I would invest in a liquid test kit. API makes an easy to do test kit. Get one that test for at least Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and PH. I would also recommened a salinity refractometer instead or a hydormeter which is not that accurate if you plan to get some corals later. I don't know your location but some online companies run some sweet deals on CUC's.
If you are getting extra food in your tank you are feeding to much. Cut back to everyother day and see if that helps.

i cant see myself getting coral honestly. Just trin to keep it simple and budget seeing how my work is becoming very very slow money is very tight.

So what do people do with the damsels after the tank is established if there that territorial ?

That is why a fishless cycle is so much better. If your LFS will take them back you could do that Or you could add a bicolor psydochromis or some Blue/green chromis.

I say blue/green chromis, thats what I went with and I love my little guy. I heard the bicolor pseudochromis could become a tad aggressive. Is that true TC?
