upgrade the lighting and go for corals. Right now I just want to get some experience.
when do you guys suggest I add the CUC?
you should see a diatom bloom after the cycle. thats a good indicator but testing first is the only way to really know when your tanks ready.

The salinity is 1.024 and I got a Jager 75 watt heater. Also there is
a slug in the tank should I take it out.

def. leave that, great free cleaner and if you have a few they do reproduce in home aquariums..which is good since snails = $1+ each.

Ok great. When I do get my clown fish what do you suggest I feed them and how often?
Unfortunately the tank is in a classroom with no freezer so I can't use frozen foods.

new life spectrum macro and hikari marine s i guess. those are the dry foods i use. the more you can offer the better and the better chance youll include everything it needs for its diet. clowns are pretty easy to feed anything but a mix of things will offer a more healthy diet.
every other day a small pinch for just clowns should be enough.
