Tank cycled

Hey my tank has finally cycled and Im ready to add fish. How many fish do you guys think I should add to start? I cant add them all at the same time right? I have a 46 gallon bow. Thanks

Add one, maybe two smaller fish, at a time starting with the least aggressive fish you plan on housing. Make new additions only after a week or so, so that the nitrifying bacteria has time to multiply and will support the bio-load. HTH

Make sure that you test your water as you do this because as you increase your bio load your water is going to change a bit. Like Mike said make sure to not get too excited and add too many fish too quickly. Mike said a week I went more like 2 or more weeks before adding additional fish and I have a large tank with a lot more water volume. I like to make sure that my system is happy.

What is your stocking plan? Is this going to be a reef or not?
