The fish in the pic is not one of the ones I have,as I said they are smaller then 1''in.

They are hardy enough to live and breed in water with a SG rating higher then the ocean.

I know these fish very well.

Why bother asking questions if you know everything

I see everyone trying to help you than you contradict them

I wouldn't waist my time

37 gal bow front (saltwater)
octopus 150 skimmer
external penguin bio wheel 150 packed with cheato
ETH 200 watt inline heater
3 power heads 500gph
in line UV sterilizer

30 gal (brackish)
bio filter
under-gravel 2 power-heads 250gph

30 gal hex (freshwater)
bio filter
under gravel 2 power heads 170gph

Who ever said keeping fish was easy should have there head examined
It's more like a full time job !!!!

OK I will get live rock and they a month later get the fish.

I will take out the tilapia and just keep the tank with salt.

Can I cycle the tank with freshwater flakes?

Can I feed the clowns tetra marine crisps.

Flake food is not a good thing to feed Marine Fish. I'd go with Squid, Mysis Shrimp,Cyclopese and Phyto Plankton.
Can you cycle the tank with FW flake food, I guess you could but why? Just throw in raw shrimp from the store. Also, the Live Rock will help cycle it, as it has bacteria and biolgicals that will start to grow.

Doesn't matter. A frozen one will thaw out.
