Do you have live rock? Is it cured? Have you seen any ammonia or nitrite spikes.

Wait until ammon and nitrites hit zero and do a water change to reduce nitrates then add your cleanup crew.

but don't add too many clean up crew members because a new tank won't have a ton of algae for the little guys to eat.
