First Fish Quarantine

Hello. My 46g bow with 45lbs LR finished cycling about 1 week ago. I plan on adding 3 Blue Green Chromis to start things off. I have a 15g QT ready but I'm concerned that if I do not put some life into my 46g that my good bacteria populations are going to dwindle and cause another cycle when I eventually add the fish. Should I just roll the dice and add the 3 Chromis to the main tank? or stick to QT and maybe add a few drops of ammonia daily to the main tank? TIA

46g SW, 65 lbs Fiji LR, 4" Aragamax DSB, Coralife 2X96w CF, CPR Bakpak II, CPR Aquafuge 12 w/ 2x9 Coralife Mini Aqualight, 4 Maxijet 600's, PCI 200W Titanium Heater, 2 Blue Green Chromis, 1 Gold Bar Maroon Clown, 1 Purple-Stripe Dottyback, Finger Leather, Trumpets, Rose Coral Open-Brain, Pagoda Cup, Xenia, Star Polyps, Yellow Polyps, Various Mushrooms, Toadstool Leather, 12 Astraea, 10 Nassarius, 4 Bumble Bee, 6 Cerith Snails, 12 Red Tip Hermits.

QT the fish and if anything "feed the tank" once or twice a week with a pinch of flake food.
