Adding new fish

I have been researching the fish I would like to add to my new 92-gallon tank. Unfortunately, I live out in the middle of nowhere and the fish options at the lfs are pretty sparse and basic. I have found places that I can order all the different fish I would look to add, but shipping rates are pretty high. The cost would be reduced if I ordered all the fish at once, but that would require adding between 15 and 20 new fish at one time. How many can I safely add to the tank at one time?

depends on the size of the fish. Looking at your tank, I guess you know about the 1 inch per gallon rule right? Just make sure you use the size of it full grown and not its size at the time. Also, I suggest you do a little more research as to the compatibility of your fish. Your huge tank won't do much if you put the wrong fish together, and your huge shipping cost is all the more reasons to be careful. Also, you dont really wanna put that much fish in at once, maybe 5-10 at a time for your tank ( but that also depends on the type of fish)
