The impatience is killing me. I literally wake up and think about fish. Then I go to school and think about protein skimmers and powerheads, then I come home and stare at my empty biocube, then to to bed and dream about fish. Story of my life...

I'm sorry to everyone for being such a mind-changer but I think I'm going to give up having Lps in my tank and go ahead and do a lemon peel angel with just mushrooms Duncan's and maybe some softies sooo....

2 clowns
1 yellow watchman goby
1 lemon peel angel
1 royal gramma(too much?)

it helps if you want fish fast, but... this hobby is about patience... also you can use the first couple weeks of cycling to make mistakes without harming anything, at least thats the way i see it!

dont worry about changing your mind, it happens to us all sometimes after we already own a fish we're like oh man i wish i could put that in my tank but i have...

Another stock idea....

1 occelaris clown
1 yellow watchman goby
1 yellow head jaw fish
1 bangaii cardinal
1 royal gramma or bicolor dottyback (???)

What do you guys think? I like this one because it adds diversity and lessens aggression from clowns.

I like that one more because clowns do get aggressive to each other at times.
