New tank, fast cycle

So I was wondering I have a new tank and it cycle very quickly due to the live rock and everything that I had. So my question is is when can I had stuff to my tank? I have two fish, seven snails and hermit crabs and everything is doing fine.

How large is the tank? When did you add the two fish? That will determine when you should add any more livestock.

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

Oh, I would for sure wait a couple weeks before adding anymore life to the tank. Its good practice to wait about 2 weeks between additions and only then if the parameters are stable. in a new tank adding livestock can cause slight spikes and you wanna make sure the bio filter can handle more fish.
