    hi guys,

    would like to know when to add livestock?

    my tank has been running almost 3 weeks now and no problems.

    I know there is a waiting period from 4-6 weeks,

    but can I start adding cleaner shrimps or hermit crabs at about 4-5 weeks?

    Wait until you know ur params are correct. Nothing worse than rushing & loosing livestock. If u really can't wait, dose Seachem Stability, I did & had great success.
