I'm in the process of cycling, and even though it probably won't be for a while, I have continued to give thought to what i'll be putting in my tank. It seems like a lot of people suggest adding a clean up crew first, then fish, then corals. Is this the best way to proceed? Adding the clean up crew first makes sense, but I've read that some invertebrates can be sensitive to nitrate fluctuations, so is there any risk to adding them right after the cycle? I've also heard the suggestion of adding the most peaceful/shy fish first, and I was thinking of getting a fire fish. Is there any disadvantage to adding a single, small, peaceful fish like that? Or would it still be best to wait a few weeks after adding the clean up crew to put any fish in?
So my new tank is cycled and has a small cuc already. 10 hermits, 5 turbo snails, and a couple of nassarius snails. I am going to add my first fish in about a week or so. I want to get a pair of clowns (1 black and white and 1 regular ocellaris). A purple firefish. and some sort of Blenny or goby (possibly 2?) its a 20 gallon tank. (Yellow watchman, clown goby, court jester, bicolor, tailspot???) Not sure yet Lol. The pair of clowns are a must, but i am up for suggestions on firefish, blennies, and gobies. I dont want to over stock either, so please let me know what your suggestions are. I would like to get clowns first, but if its a problem then obviously not. Let me know your suggestions please, I am new to this.
