You need to watch your water perameters for your cycle to be done with. Once it is done you can start to add your some of your clean up crew. Give that a week or two to make sure you cycle is done. Then, slowly add fish. Make sure you qt them first. It will save you a bunch of frustration. Trust me! HTH

I agree. Test your water, when ammonia/nitrAtes/nitrItes are at 0, you cycle should be complete.

If it is cured and your cycle is complete, you can add LR, acclimate your fish and add them. The LR will give them a place to hide.
