I'm not a seasoned vet but I think you could add two fish at first then based on your biofilter catching up and your parameters staying stable, wait a botu 2 weeks and add one or two.

You also have to think of the order of the particular fish. tangs should all be introduced at once, so if you wanted 3 youd have to add them all, BUT I think that would be fine.

I want anthias', but it says its best to introduce them all at once. I wouldnt normally add 4 or 5 fish at a time but theres occasion when you do.

I thinkit;s best to start of with the more mellow fish and then add the most aggressive last.

just my thoughts, hope it helped

Yeah. Imma add the yellow eye, wait, do the hawkfish, and fox face last. Just gotta watch the corals. And inverts with the hawkfish.. I'm getting the 1400's on the 1st and getting rid of the 802 ph's I have. LFS is giving me them 10% above his cost, so I'm lucking out. Better then paying 60-80 for them.
