Can I add frags?

Pretty much as simple as the title, can I add frags to my tank while still cycling from live rock?

I'm looking at some pulsing xenia.

Actually, seemingly I can't? I couldn't find any info before but just read that I shouldn't add anything until the cycle is finished.

Makes sense though!

I wouldnt' add anything alive to your tank while its cycling. especially coral, they require good water parameters.

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

I just finished setting up my 90g and it's cycling now. I'm not planning to add any coral for at least 6 months of everything being stable.

you can add corals after the tank cycles, but don't expect any corals to live, let alone do well, adding them during a cycle. that goes for fish and inverts as well.
