With all that rock you were probably pretty much cycled. that helps tremendously. i try to always start a tank with ALOT of live rock so that my cycle is short or even non existent.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I just added my first fish this week! Started with a black and white clown, a yellow watchman and a cleaner shrimp. The watchman jumped the overflow box the first night . The shrimp died on the second day. Turns out my salinity was too high even though my hydrometer was reading OK range. I added a much smaller second clown yesterday but am not gonna do anymore inverts until I get things more stable. Both clowns are happy and checking out every nook and cranny of the tank. They never separate from each other. When it came time to feed I was actually nervous! They gobbled it up like pros and I'm hoping the hermits eat the leftovers. Never noticed a blip on the water parameters.
