I completely agree on the pandas. Mine in the 90g are well into their second year with me, but they seem susceptible to everything. And I only added them after the tank was well established. And these are now commercially raised fish, not wild caught, which most think should mean hardier, yet they have retained their high sensitivity to water conditions.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I'd probably wait to add the pandas until you just can't stand it anymore. Even after cycling a tank is going to be doing some chemical gyrations. The longer you let it sit the better off you are. Put your other fish in first then add your pandas.
