aded a CUC 3 weks ago all parameters in check
am0
nirite 0
nitrate 5 give or take
ca 420 ppm
alk 80 ppm



now for first fish i want to add 2 fake percula clowns and a small blue hippo tang but im thinking as the bacteria colony isnt very large the tang may be overkill even if small should i stick with just the 2 clowns and get the tang in a few weeks keep in mind they would all be only an inch or so

Success with this hobby is patience.
Go for the pair now and consider adding your tang about one month later.
Check that the pair is healthy and eating at the lfs.
