Takes time, don't want to add more bio load then your bacteria can handle.

It's taken me about three months to get my tank stocked, now working on corals and inverts.

I don't think he has a bio load, he should wait at least a week and do a test before adding anything, but you can't stop people from finding out the hard way?? Lots of salt and bio spira will keep his fish alive

I don't want him to have a spike and wipe his tank. In a bio cube it's very easy, not topping it off for a day can do that.
