Well as of 11-23 your tank hadn't fully cycled yet. when your Ammonia and Nitrites are 0, and your Nitrates are below 40, you can add the Clowns. It doesn't matter if you add them now or later, the waste they make builds up the bacteria in the tank, it will happen, no matter when you add them.

Ok. I had my water tested and everything was at the right level. I'm buying a test kit when I get in town. I'll be home Friday night, I'm working...

Oh, they need strong lighting. And don't try to place them where you think you want them, they don't really care about that. When they are happy they will settle down. Once you set them in the tank, leave em alone. Feeding, once maybe twice a week, if they are getting the light needed, they will not eat much from you. Can feed like chunks of silverslides, or plankton, or squid chunks.

I bought frozen mysis shrimp since that is what they were feeding it. Would led lighting be fine or do I need like metal halides?

LED should work fine.

enough LEDs should work fine, i agree but it will thrive better under the halides. 6+ t5s could keep some nems but for their long term health i feel need the penetrating power of a halide. a small squirt of mysis would be a good weekly offering, i would also try switching up food with a weekly silverside/another food to offer more variety, which wouldnt hurt.

I'm looking into the rapid led kit
Biocube 29 Dimmable Retrofit Kit

I'm gonna buy the Dimmable controller with it to set dawn, day, night lights. Looking into a skimmer also, either tunze or CPR sr3.

It arrives around noon and my wife acclimated and released it into my tank around noon. From the videos I've seen it looks to be doing pretty good.
