How long can these fish actually survive in these 5 gallon buckets I have a bubbler for air but I'm just wondering and in case the water does not clear up enough for me to put them in their tank

Sounds exciting. A better way to calculate how many gallons there are would be to type in the dimensions on an aquarium volume calculator. Anyway, what are you stocking it with (what you have now, and want in the future)?

Right now the tank came with a flame angel, a squirrel fish, a mated pair a neon damsel (he's not staying I know the bullying they do.

Now, in my 55 I have an engineer goby, blue devil Fiji, one clown, and two azure.

I'd like to add a yellow or a blue regal. But I'm not sure if all of this would be over stocking.

I've got a piece of equipment in the sump that I have no idea what it is. It's got little white balls in it the size of bbs.

Gonna be a learning curve for sure.

Whelp I've almost got all the water in. A few more hours and I'll drop the heater in and hopefully get the sump running so I can get these guys back in the tank. Since I have basically 2 sets of live rock going in should I attempt to arrange the rock 1st, or should I place the fish 1st then arrange?
