You can start skimming anytime, if productive then you know if the time is right or not.
What are your water parameters?

Are you getting the new LR and curing it or is it going to be cured LR? If its not cured and you add it to the tank you will have a new cycle... So I would get that before you add any fish... Good luck..

I'm not sure you have room for a green chromis, a clown, and a goby.
