I know most people say the later the better but I don't really have the patience. I'm at the nitrate no3 spike right now. After the spike is over how soon can I put corals? Btw I'm using Fritz turbo start 900. Thank you.

Amazon sells patience in a bag for $1.99, might be a wise investment :rolleyes:

I would wait a few weeks and let the tank mature. Water changes is the only way to get rid of the nitrates which may quickly kill any coral you put in the tank.

I'd wait a month after the tank is cycled before adding soft corals and longer for stony corals.

I agree with @Krib32. Monitor your levels for at least a week after everything is cycled. If all is stable over the week, then start to get some softies.
