What do you want your tank set up to be? A fish only ste up? A fish only with LR? Or a reef system....all that is going to decide what you need to do next....i wouldn't add any fish into your tank untill you know exactly what you want your tank to be. If you are adding LS or LR, you will need to let your tank cycle for a few weeks before you add any fish.
