Benamayer is totally right. The cured live rock and sand should have some of the bacteria that you need to convert the ammonia to nitrate. That's one of the best things about starting with cured live rock. You get a smoother cycle than only using dry rock. Glad to hear it's going well.

Oh its going very well! Just tested again today n here's where I'm at
HR pH 8.2
Ammonia 1ppm
Nitrites .25ppm
Nitrates 0-5ppm
Salinity is still at 1.028 but that's bc I haven't taken any water out and added fresh rodi :/ been busy with work unfortunately lol

I'm surprised to see these numbers this quick tanks only been up 4-5 days now

That's great. Wait until the ammonia and nitrite go to 0 then do a water change to drop nitrates and your good.

Ok so I was looking on LiveAquaria and here's a list of fish that I'm interested in all suitable for a 10gallon tank and up.

-orange spotted goby
-firefish
-purple firefish
-occy clown(20g min. I know)
-court jester goby
-hi fin red banded goby

Which ones would go nicely together? And how many?

Definitely not all of them. I would say 3 max with good filtration. Really whichever ones you want!!!! Just make sure your filter can keep up .

That's just a general guideline. If you can keep trates low easily and you have no aggression issues, you can add more.
