Try to get a good skimmer. You will need it. Good look

Neatfish Hey thanks. No I don't have a skimmer. I'm going to trade in the clown for something else not sure what yet.

Nice tank. I recommend you to put more rock before you ad fishes. Your tank can hold only one more fish and I think is too much. I have a 20 gal tank and I have only 2 fishes a few snails, a crab, a shrimp, and a ophiura sea star. I have mushrooms corals in majority and I have with them like 8 years. You need to be patient I hope you success with this tank. I recommend you only keep this clown fish and buy other small invertebrates. Or take out the clown fish and buy 2 small fishes but first buy more cured rock. Do you have skimmer? I leave you a link so you can see my tank.

FisheriesOmen If you ever get a deeper sandbed you could get something like a Yasha Goby and small pistol shrimp or get a yellow head jaw fish.

Firefish are notorious carpet surfers so you would need a glass canopy or wire mesh cover.

Neatfish That's what it is. When it gets a little bigger I'll trade it for a fire fish or something like that. Got ideas?

FisheriesOmen Looks like a Maroon Clownfish. I wouldn't put any other fish in that tank as Maroons are very aggressive clownfish.

Neatfish Wife came home with this last night.

Neatfish No I didn't find the fish. I took down the picotope and moved everything to new 10g tank in the pic I posted above.

AdamC13 with saltwater it really is all about patience. I had a 12 gallon biocube set up for 5 years with a mated pair of clownfish and various soft corals and it was slow to start. You wont have a "finished" looking tank after a few months unless you have tons of money for corals. The best advice I can give is to just be persistent. It seems like every few days you want to scrap it or change it or something just get it stable start with easy corals like zoanthids or mushrooms and pay close attention to top off.

Did you ever find your fish btw? a pistol shrimp/goby combo would be awesome in a tank that size
