How do you know when to add new fish?
 
I'm going to cycle my tank, then add 5 Chromis. Then I'm going to add 2 False Clownfish, a Hippo Tang, a Flame Angel, and a Sea Urchin. But in what order and how long inbetween? I'm leaving that up to my good friends of AA.com :D

how big of a tank do you have?? if you want to add fishes it's better that you add a little at a time.. it depends on your tank size and the size of the fish or how much bioload it produces.. i have a 95g and i only add no more than two at a time.. this gives the bacteria colony time to adjust to the bioload, that way i don't get a rise in nitrate or anything.. after the bacteria adjusts to the new fish then you can add some more..
