Yeah slow down. The tank is new and needs time to mature. I dont add corals to a new tank for at least 3 months and I start with hardy corals. Fish are the first to get stocked up 1 at a time so the bactieria can adjust to the increased bio load. I also cycle the tank with no lights for a month constantly adding a source of ammonia, no fish added at this time. I used use a few damsels or mollies to cycle a tank but found damsels to be on the agressive side and it takes longer ime.
