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.

Tank history 29g tropical ,55g cichlid tank, 20H softy reef, 29g mixed reef, 20H brackish goby & puffer tank, 55g mixed reef, 6g Nanocube softy lps reef, 40B sps reef, 75g sps reef, 75g sps reef in bu

Current Tank Info: 75g sps reef build in the works.
