When I first started I used the fish-in method, but on my last 90 gallon I did the Fishless method which allowed me to build up a large colony of beneficial bacteria. This was ideal for my situation because it allowed me to fully stock with 12 African cichlids and a large feather fin catfish all at the same time. (I read in several articles that would help keep aggression to a minimum) It was tough having the tank set up and running without fish for almost a month, but in the end I think it is a better route to take.
