    Hi Guys

    was wondering, once ones tank has finished cycling, what should a person introduce first? Some hermit, crabs and shrimp then coral and lastly fish?

    Hi

    Usually cleanup crew(CUC), then fish then corals.

    Start with snails and hermit first.

    And add stock slowly as the biological filtration must build up to cater for the bio load that is added.

    And take it slow, if you can get some good quality live rock out some ones OLD tank that will take you a long way.
