First off, need t lnow a few things...Do you have LR? If so, how much? What type of tank do you plan on having, Fo, FOWLR, reef? Remember, you need to add additons very slowly to a new tank so the biological filtration can keep up with the new bio-load. What type of filtration do you have?

good, sounds like your are ready to add fish. Add then very slowly one or two at a time. Then wait four weeks beforeadding anything else.

To better assist you, post the tank parameters for water quality here so everyone here will be able to help you. Test for: pH, Nitrate, Nitrite, Ammonia. These numbers will help you determine if your tank is ready to start adding you livestock.

Your parameters look good. I would start with one fish at a time. I'm not sure what kind of corals you can have with that lighting. Someone else can answer that for you. I haven't dove into that, but I am getting close.
