a mandarin is like an anemone, think long time, goby wont make a cycle in my opinion, salt cycles are different from fresh, they are more harmful, i never cycled a fresh tank before, but i killed a damsel in a salt cycle, even though its a hrdy fish, my first cycle, adn i killed it, then i learned hermy and fishless, its the same wait no matter what, shrimp isnt a big loss, a fish would be

proabbly wont be aproblem, depending on what you want, but you will definitley have to wait a few motnhs, 4? after the cycle, gotta let the tank age a while,

mosts inverts are sensative to water quality. I added some mexican turbo snails and red leg reef hermits just after the cycle finished. Dont add too much as there will be a limited supply of "food" for them.
