Ok so now its time to talk about livestock.
I need an idea on CUC
I would want 2 percula clowns. A fire fish, and posibly a goby if i can
I would want to do corals like an anemone, Taro tree coral, Hammer, frogspawn
How would this work out and i need an idea for the CUC

ANy updates? Have you started stocking yet?
Your last pic, it is very hard to tell what that is.

Those items yiu wish to put in there will work, providing yiur lighting is up to snuff. As far as CUC, that's up to you. I don't much care for hermits, you never know what they are going to munch on. But get a bunch of different snails.

Ok so the tank is doing ok with the cycle, but it appears I have diatom growth on the rocks and also algae that I don't know what it is.
Ok this is on the sand and the glass and rocks


And then I have this red fuzzies growing on one rock that I don't know what it is
it almost looks like red yawn

Yup, diatom bloom, will get all over the place. Other looks like filament algae. Doesn't look like cyano.

Alright so the stuff on the glass is diatom? And the filament algae how should I get rid of it? Just let it run its course and get a cuc that will munch on it?

Yea, the Diatoms will kinda grow where ever. And your CUC will mow down the Algae. Might be a Macro Algae, and they will really like that stuff.
