Newbie Question; when can I add more fish?


I have a 125 gallon tank and just started a FOWLR aquarium last week and got my first fish on Sunday. It is a Black Percula Clownfish.

Question, how long should I wait before adding more fish? & do you have any fish recommendations?

Thank you!

You should have waited until your cycle was complete before adding a fish. However, since he's already in there you're going to have to watch your ammonia levels and do PWC's to keep him from dying and your cycle will take longer than a fishless cycle would have. Once your cycle is complete and your params are stable, I waited a week to add a fish. You also don't want to add too many at once so your filtration can adjust to the increased bioload.
