I agree going slow at this point is important for long time success. IMO
waiting till algae growth is not important since you want to get some inverts/fish in the tank to keep your bacterial base going.
IME stocking 1 invert (i.e. snail/hermit) per 2 gal
is sufficient when starting and they should have enough to feed off the lr
. If you don't have at least 50 lbs of lr
in the tank then you should feed frozen (about 1/4 cube) every 2-3 days to keep them going till you get fish in there. Once you have a fish or two the clean up crew can feed off the leftovers.
If adding red/blue leg hermits then make sure you have about 4-6 extra shells they can move into to keep canibalisim down from fighting for shells to move into.
it's best to wait 3+ months before adding shrimp and 6+ months if you want to add a reef safe Sea Star.
With all inverts it's very important to drip acclimate them for 2-3 hours for hermits/snails and 3-5 hours for shrimp/sea stars. They are less tolerant to changes in ph/sg
/temp and need the longer acclimation to adjust from the source water to your main tanks water.
Will you be using a QT?
