New tank - How long to wait to add fish?

Just transferred my 75 to a 110 a couple days ago things for starting to look fine. How long should I wait before introducing new corals and fish

In my opinion it depends on what you have in there already. The more fish you have now the longer i would wait to add more. As far as corals you can add away as long as the parameters are good.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I moved from a 50 gal wide to a 125 and was able to add fish in just a few days. I would recommend using Chemi-pure and some type of beneficial bacteria product to speed up the cycling process.

Nope, I wouldnt expect a cycle unless you re-used any sand from the old tank without rinsing it.

I would also say 2 weeks is good enough to make sure the water and tank is mostly stable.
