I wouldn't recomend that many fish to start. I would not go with more than 2. Then give it a couple weeks for the bacteria to catch up. Slow and steady. I also have a 45 and I never added more than 2 fish at a given time. I have a total of 6 fish. I will add one more but that is maxed out. The only reason I will add the last one is because my tank is now well established.

Good point.

I'll have to come up with a long term stock list and see what fish would be best to put in first/last.

Thanks again!

You could add your whole stocking list if you wanted - you have built a very strong biological filter. However they need to establish territory and it would be very stressful on them.
