Newbie with a 8 gallon bio cube

Hi, my name is Don from upstate NY. My dons bought me a 8 galllon bio cube for Xmas. My son had a 200 gallon salt water tank and helped me get this little one started. I added sand and then mixed the salt with tap water and the chemical to remove chems out of the water. I purchased a heater also and set the time to 76. I let it run for two days and tested the water and it was good for fish. I purchased 9 pounds of live rock tonight and intoruced them to the tank. how long before I can add fish ? What kind would you suggest for a 8 gallon bio cube with live rock ?

I was thinking at least one Damsel in about 4 days from now. Then I would love a clown fish but how long after I introduce the Damsel fish. Also what else can be added and when ? like shrimp or clams ?

Thanks again in advance for any help.

You need to cycle the tank before you are ready for any livestock.

Go SLOW if you want a succesfull tank.
