You can, but corals have almost no bioload to them. So if you add a fish, it might cause a mini cycle. I'd add a fish to keep the bacteria fed and then corals.

Ok good to know i never knew that. Fish it is then. So i guess my second question is since im planning to quarentine my fish. What can i do to keep the beneficial bacterica growing while fish is in the quarentine.

-toss a raw table shrimp in

I actually tested for ammonia and nitrite this morning which both was at 0ppt. So i wonder if my cycle is done. I guess ill throw some fish food in and see if theres a spike and will test again.
