I would say to take a look at your water parameters and see if everything looks normal.

Don't add fish until you are sure the cycle is complete. Have you been cycling the tank and testing the levels throughout? The only answer to 'long enough' is when you have gone through the ammonia/nitrite/nitrate rise and fall cycle. And not until

With those parameters, I'd say you are ok to start to stock (slowly and lightly). What are your stocking plans? What size tank?
