    Ammonia is slowly starting to drop in guessing about 2ppm still. BUT we finally have Nitrite which looks to be approx 0.5.

    Good progress I feel.
    I'll leave the prawns in till the ammonia is 0 and nitrite is 0 and then ill do a 40L water change to drop nitrates and remove the prawns.

    What fish would be a better starting fish 2x small clowns or 2x small fairy wrasse.

    Tank raised clowns would be your best bet

    Tbh im not 100% sure on actual bread names. We seen the fairy wrasse at mentone aquarium. I'll post closest picture I can find.
    As for clowns id love some basic ones but would be nice if they would hoast an with an anemone

    If by basic clowns you mean ocellaris, they will be fine, They will just have their little patch somewhere and will goof around there.

    Not fairy wrasses but one of my favourite reef safe wrasses is the mystery wrasse or an easy to get, cheap, small and hardy wrasse that is great for beginners is the 6 line wrasse.
