    I agree no bubble wand. Leave the bubbles to your protein skimmer.

    Firefish Goby

    They should be ok. Firefish do better if bought in pairs and they also could jump out of tank so have a good closed up tank with not to many openings. Hope this helps.

    You could add a Damsel but I would wait until your tank cycles, you may not want a Damsel due to them being a semi-aggressive fish. Distilled Water is better than most tap water however R.O. Water is best. Hpoe this helps and welcome to the board.

    Not an expert but your Cal. appears to be low. I think your Cal. should be atleast 400.
