If I were u go pick up the inverts this weekend.. and ONE HARDY FISH.. then space out one fish every 2 weeks to allow the bio load to catch up... you can pick up as many corals as you want they don't have a bio load like fish... I would and always do recommend a frogspawn...great looking under attinic lighting and hardy.
