How soon is too soon???

So my tank is only a couple of months old but quite mature.....should I only be adding one fish at a time or can I put a blenny, goby and pistol shrimp at the same time???

If your parameters are stable I don't see why not?

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

who, me? Any tank 55g and up deserves a blenny and a goby. I'm just a tad biased

Did you notice the tank cycle? What are your water test results now?

Oh they are perfect. I just wanted to know if that would be increasing the bio load to quickly and would it stress the other tankmates if everyone goes in at the same time.....

How long ago was the last time you put fish in? I forgot to ask that question....I'd make sure you have waited about 2 weeks before adding more. Just so the bioload can catch up.
