Hello everyone, I’ve been on the freshwater side of the hobby for a long time and have decided to turn this 20 gal tall tank I had lying around into my first reef tank. So far, I’ve set it up with approximately 18 lbs of dry rock that I’ve been curing for the past 3 months and about an inch and a half of live sand. I have several questions and would be very grateful if you folks could help me out. I really need help in choosing what corals and fish I should stock the tank with. What are some good beginner corals to start out with? Should I add corals first or fish first? Does this matter a lot? I was defiantly wanting to keep an ocellaris clownfish, possibly a pair of them, and was also interested in a firefish, royal gramma and a yellow watchmen goby. Are these fish compatible with each other? Any suggestions on possible combinations of them would be appreciated. Was wanting to keep a shrimp or crab in the tank as well. Any suggestions on these? Was hoping I could do a combo of 3 of the fish I listed and one invertebrate. If you guys have any other species you think I should consider other than the ones I listed please let me know, all advice is appreciated!
