How long has it been set up?

Test it every day or two just so you know what stage it's at!

But if you have started your cycle properly you may have another month to wait.

What's your nitrate, nitrate and ammonia readings?

Ok so add a block if food and let that decompose! Your trites should drop to zero very quickly when it's ready. Make sure your ammonia is zero also.

Once they are stable get 1 small fish. A chromis is a good starter. Then don't add anything for another 2 - 4 weeks. Only add one fish at a time!
