I would personally wait a couple of months on new additions. I like a tank to "mature" a bit and settle in. The biobugs are not completely established and solid right now, in that disruption of the...

I think you'll be okay in terms of bioload, assuming you don't have many more babies, and the very small size of them means the bacterial colonies can grow right along with them. Keep checking the...

I'm WAY more concerned that you have ammonia. All my tanks run pH 7.4-7.6 so don't worry a bit about that.

Neons are not the hardiest of tetras so I'd do a PWC and keep that ammonia low. You're...

This sounds like spawning behavior to me, but you say the angels are six weeks of age? This is a very tiny angel if so, and a bit early for spawning behavior.

No problem on the stones. What I do after cleaning with bleach is to rinse well, then soak in a bucket with an overdose of dechlorinator. You have no worries at all after that.

I'd start off with 7-8 fish and be sure to test for ammonia and nitrIte daily to see what happens.

That is a VERY encouraging sign that the LFS would bother to give advice about cycling the tank,...
