New to corals and inverts

Just started a 75 gallon tank and looking to get corals and inverts in the future. If anyone could give me a timeframe on when it is safe to add corals that would be great! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It all depends on the lighting you have for you tank. What are the specs for you lights? do you wanna go LPS or SPS?

With inverts I would think after your tank cycles would be good. They are usually sensitive to any water chemistry changes in short times especially in nitrates and salinity. What I did was find the cheapest shrimp I could and threw him in there bc I would rather a peperiment or camel back shrimp die before cleaner or fire red shrimp. Coral it really depends what type many times if you get on live aquaria it will say recommendations of the established aquarium. Id say after cycled 2 months softies 5 months most everything else 8 months nems. Make sure you have the lighting requirments bc that is just as important as having an established tank for the coral.
