New Salt Tank, 75 gal, schedule of events

Hi All,

I am in the process of converting my 75 gal freshwater into salt and was wondering if there is any kind of general timeline of events for the various steps (e.g. 1 month of live rock, etc.). I don't want to move too quickly and I know my impulsive personality will make that difficult. But if I had a concrete schedule to follow, I'd be able to take it nice and easy and not have 20 fish in my 1 week old tank.

Ideally you'd want to add all the rock you plan on having (live Rock or dry or a mix) sand (if you're having sand) in the tank before you start the cycle.
Could take about a month to cycle, then add fish slowly, one at a time with a few weeks in between...
