I don't personally think you need to wait 6 months before getting corals. You do however need a stable system and 6 months can be the time frame for some to stabalize their system, but it's not always the case with every system.
That was what I meant. I just figured that was the average time for tanks to become stable enough to add corals.

Some people go the FOWLR route, then after a year, transition into corals while removing non reef-compatible specimen. One good benefit of that is that it allows your tank system to develop a good amount of bacterial colony. And they are the one keeping things stable to the point where you won't even need your Ammonia and Nitrite testers....forever, if not.

With that said, some people start their Nanos and Picos out without a long wait. So it's possible for reef to be conceived in less than six months if you know what you are doing. Especially in your case, you've been a fresh water hobbyist for a long time now, to the point where you fully understand water parameters already.

I say, yes, you can have a go at it since you know what's up.

Good luck.
