240 gallon reef

I am converting my FOWLR to a reef and I have a plan, I am going to get one coral and one fish every weekend for a while then eventually stop with the fish and keep adding coral to the max capacity. Is this a good idea? Or is it to fast? And how many fish/ coral could I fit in the tank. I have about 200lbs of live rock I have a 60 gallon refugium with an in sump skimmer, it's a 8 foot tank I have two 36 inch 6 bulb t5 lights is this enough? The tank is 24 inches deep. Sorry for all the questions I'm very excited and anxious. Thanks in advance for all the help.

Id say you would be good for low and medium light corals, high-light corals MAY do ok if you keep them higher up in the tank. As for stocking, thats strictly based on what fish
