I must have been wrong, I thought you knew when your tank was ready because of water parameters, my mistake.
my bad mustn't of read it properly didn't see that it was a fishless cycle i always leave a smallish fish say 1 molly in there for around 6-7 weeks with 50% changes every 3-5 days depending on how far i am through the cycle then drip feed the fish every week adding 5 to 7 at a time
