Thank You. Honestly at the moment, I want to pick out my corals in person, so I can get an idea of what they should look like, etc, before I start trading or buying online. I appreciate the offer, maybe in a few months

I don't have a pistol Shrimp for a few reasons. first, I have not actually seen one locally (I know right). 2nd, I don't want him to hurt my cleaner shrimp. My cleaner usually stays up top and the pistol would be on the bottom, but ya never know. And lastly, my watchman is almost always up front in plain view and pretty active. Im scared if I get the pistol they will burrow in the back and ill never see them. Its all still up in the air, we will see what the 8th brings.

I was looking at Duncan's yesterday, and I'm going to add them to my list!
As for the Chromis, they are not really my thing. I think they would look cool as a large group in a large tank, but not in the nano. I'm scared about the Blenny because I read they can get a little dominate over goby's, and my watchman is very small still, so I'm not sure how I feel about that. Thanks for the Kind words.
Again, thanks for everyone's help. Its been a very tiresome project due to my many issues. I have had horrible luck so far so when I see that my water is pretty much ready to go for some corals and I hear everyone's kind words I get super excited and all that work is finally paying off.
Unfortunately, I may need to take the QT down completely as I really don't have the room for it right now. (its in the bedroom), so again im going to run some risk with getting fish, but I don't think I have a choice at this moment.
