I'd say about 6-8 months. You want stable levels so you've gotta have time for it to settle down.

Man... it's like 1-3 months till I get fish... like a year till I get corals... this is discouraging and I don't even have my glass yet for my aquarium.
But again those are some NICE corals!

For your big tank I recommend you read this Green: Long-Term Considerations for a Successful Reef Tank by Mark van der Wal - Reefkeeping.com
And also in a tank of that size, get one huge Table Acro or Plating Montipora. It will look awesome.

You could probably get some softies earlier than that though.

Once your testing shows that your parameters are stable you can try one out and see.
