Plant it first. With enough plants from day one, you can add a few fish/small fish and the plants will easily handle the ammonia. Without the plants, you will have "new tank syndrome" and risk ammonia and then nitrite issues harming if not killing the fish.

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]

38 gallon :
Pelvicachromis Taeniatus Nigerian Red not yet breeding pair
4 Pangio Kuhli
12 Hemmigrammus Bleheri
2 Botia Lohachata
1 Botia Straita

the fish simply wouldn't be able to turn around in the 50 gallon and it would still cause stress
