My tank has cycled and I need some advice

Well my cycle has finished My readings are 0-Ammonia, 0-Nitrites, and 5-Nitrates. I was wondering what I should add first to my tank. the only fish that I would like to have are some clowns and definatly a jaw fish. What should go in first or should I add a cleanup crew first, but there really isn't anything to cleanup. Please let me know. I have read that the jaw fish should be the first.

I would try the clean up crew first. Try a few snails, if they do OK, then move on to other things.
Remember to qt all new fish you purchase. Not trying to insult your intelligence, I just learned the hard way.
Have fun!!

There is no harm in adding a fish first. The cleanup crew eats algae and detritus, with a new tank and no fish, there will be very little of either to feed the cleaners.

I'm not talking about a full blown cleanup crew. A few snails are a good test subject while the new fish are in qt.
