Wait until the nitrites read zero on their own. I would not be in a hurry to add animals so quickly after the tank has cycled. Once the nitrites are gone, do the 30-40% water change and let the tank sit a few more days ( a week would be better) to make sure everything remains stable.

You can then either introduce the first fish after properly quarantining for 4 weeks or begin deciding on the clean up crew.

Cheers
Steve

Patience is the number one thing you need in saltwater. If you don't have it, you picked the wrong hobby.
