Wow I feel dumb, I've been doing nitrate test wrong. Now that I did it right its ammo 0, rites 0, and rates like 80-160

So once I do a water change to get the rates down am I good to start stocking?

You may have to do an extremely large pwc or a couple smaller ones...

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

K so I have an update (been talking about it in another thread of mine)

So I got nitrates down to near nothing earlier today. Just now I got 5 little hermits and 5 snails for half off they're acclimating right now.
Fish list is now:
Black and white oscellaris
Orange oscellaris
Royal gramma
Yellow watchman goby
And maybe eventually one more really small fish but we'll see

One hermit with a barnacle on its shell actually dug up an old shell in the sand and got in it
