Question Hey Everyone...

Hi there, I'm new to starting a saltwater fish only aquarium for now... Were starting an aquarium for our 2 year old daughter. I had fresh water fish as a kid, but haven't done this in awhile. I know a lot has changed since I was younger, so going to try and give it another try. We have a 60 gallon tank that were starting from ground up. I would appreciate any help and info anyone may have. So far I have a 200 watt heater, aqua clear filter 110, planning on putting in aragonite, an aqueon circulation pump 950, and I'm going to buy some salt water that has been run through RO from a local aquarium store. Were planning on starting with a couple of clown fish and going from there little by little once We've set everything up and let the tank run through it's cycle process. Any suggestions how long I should wait before adding fish?
