2 months 2 soon for coral

Started my tank Aug 15 went through a 2.5 week cycle and would like to start adding some hardy corals. Water parameters are great although Nitrates still at about 15ppm. Is it still too early?

Nitrates should be less than 10ppm.... I would say that most will say that its too soon.. IMO you should wait at least 6 months... However I bought fully cured LR and it too the tank 1 week to cycle with no spike at all after adding fish so I figured I would add a Coral My tank has been setup for a month... doing fine and all.. but i would wait for about 4-6 months... Btw the person I got the LR from stated that he has had ppl buy the rock and add corals and such the same day without problems and well i trust him..

if you want to add something, try some mushrooms. they're probably your best bet in an under established tank.
