New fish

Hey ya peeps!
My 275 litre marine tank is pretty much cycled now and was wondering what fish/corals to initially introduce.
What do you think?
Can I introduce coral and fish together or separately. If I just put fish in first shall I put a pair in the tank to start off?
Thank uuuuuuu
Carlo

It just depends on what your putting in and the best way is to know your finished stock list before the first thing enters your tank I'm guessing this is gonna be a peaceful tank though since your planning on reef so I'd suggest a school of dartfish to begin

You can put both coral and fishin at the same time, it's up to you.

A pair of clowns would be nice, those i would introduce together and not on different days.

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

Most would suggest to wait on the anemone until the tank is more "seasoned". They require a mature tank and very good lighting.

What's the best way to introduce corals? Do the same rule of introducing fish apply?

I drip acclimate my corals the same way i do my fish. Usually over an hour and a half. Every 20 mins or so i remove half the total water.
