I had a pair of purple firefish which I enjoyed and a Yellow Watchman goby which was good. So far the B&W clowns are seriously fun to watch- they are in constant movement vs the others who were a little more... stable.

I've got a MJ1200 return pump, two Korrilla 425's in my cube and I'm going to head in the direction of more flow so I think you're likely okay

ATO's are a wonderful thing. Does that tank have a lid/light combo that goes on it? If so, you'll loose very very little. Just mark a line in the overflow area and check it often to get a feel for how fast you're loosing.

Get a refractometer. Hydrometers are less expensive but unreliable.

IMO purchasing good quality equipment in this hobby will save you money in the long run. You may have a bigger upfront cost but in the end it will save you money because if you go cheap you will ultimately end up having to replace or upgrade that piece of equipment. And will likely end up spending more in the process vs getting that quality item right off the bat that will last.

That's one thing that just isn't optional to me even if you aren't making your own saltwater. $25 on amazon. Skip the hydrometer.

She is a brave clown and has nipped at me before but only when getting near their territory. I suppose that is all the time in a smaller tank Can't wait to see it with all your new stuff in and open

Clown bites are a rite of passage. I rearranged my corals, my female clown would knock them down.I go to pick them up, my male bites me. Anytime I reach into their end, I get bit, but that is just how they are

My female bites me every time I get into the tank and now the male is starting in. They chase my hand all over the tank too and not just while around their Frogspawn, so apparently they don't like me much? I guess they have not heard the expression "don't bite the hand that feeds you"...

I had a blue leg hermit crab fall from the top of my rock and landed in the sand and then it slid out of it's shell and floated under the live rock and I can't get it out not sure if it will hurt the tank
