    All the best on the tank.

    Looks good, I would still give it a few weeks.
    Maybe some mushrooms and a nice goby.
    How many litres is it?

    Its enough for one or two small fish, just be sure they are not jumpers.
    There are also so many cool inverts you can get.
    In my little 30 litre I have a hi-fin goby, a clown goby and a red scooter dragonet. I also have three different coloured hermits, a boxing crab, a fire cracker shrimp, a sexy shrimp, a turban snail, some mushrooms, ricordea, candy canes and acans.
    The hi-fin goby is the biggest problem because he always jumps in the back.

    Two clowns and a anemone later when your tank is more mature. Mushrooms, Kenya tree, pin cushion, zoas Few fish you can choose. Coral goby's they tiny, scooter goby, mandarin, fire goby, pom pom crabs, anemone shrimps, harlequin, they eat only starfish, bicolor blenny, lots of character. There are to many to name, best is chech them all out and choose the ones you like.

    I think this tank is too small for an anemone, unless you get those mini carpet anemones.
    Temperature and other parameters flucuate too much in such a small tank.

    looking good, alot of LEDS on there :)

    as for stocking, zoas, shrooms and even lps and sps will be fine, but wait 2-3 weeks to let the biological filter grow

    as for fish, maybe 2 small gobies, like the dracula gobies, 2cm in size, anemone shrimps, peppermint shrimps

    They should be ok once the tank settles, just becareful where you place them as they have a mean sting.
