I’m new here I just started the hobby a few weeks ago. So far I’m amazed on how much their is to know but it’s definitely keeping me busy. so far I’m starting out with a Biocube 32G if I get good at and manage to keep everything happy and alive I’ll definitely upgrade to a bigger tank.
I could use some help though with what to put into my tank so far I only have.
6 - Blue leg crabs
4 - snails
2 - Small regular clown fish.
Id like put a Pygmy Angel, Royal Gamma and a High-Fin Goby. I’m not sure if it will work?

thanks.

I see your tank is only a few weeks old, I would be patient before adding anything else for awhile. Let the tank get its bacteria established, if you up the bioload to quickly, you'll crash.

Welcome!

I have High-Fin Goby on my fish wishlist too but don't have any personal experiences yet with that particular fish. Sure is cute though!

Glad you joined

I’ve passed the diatom stage and I’m getting green algae on glass now. So am I at the bacteria established stage?

I mean personally if your tank is only a few weeks old and you already have those inhabitants, I would wait at least another month before adding anything else.
remember nothing good in this hobby comes fast!

I found a really good deal here in Toronto for a high-fin and pistol shrimp comes pared together. We don’t have a lot of places that specialize in saltwater aquarium here.

Welcome to R2R! The Pygmy angel is the smallest of the dwarf angels but I would still not put it in 32 biocube. They can be pugnacious little fish and with an established pair of clowns I would go another direction.

If you have a chance at the goby/shrimp pair I think it would be ok. They would not add to bioload significantly.

Royal Gramma's also get to 3" or so but tend to be less active. They will usually have a cave they like to call home but will defend it vigorously. Examine your aquascape realistically....will it have a place to call home? A pair of clowns will likely claim the whole tank (in this size tank) as their territory.
