Hi i have a 90g sw tnak with 33g sump, cycled, with 98 lbs of live rock. Currently i have 2 chromis in it, but was wondering when can i add more fish and how many at one time, im guessing i woudl do a full water test and water change to make sure all levels are good and then go ahead and add a fish, thus again how many fish can be nearly added, i only ask becasue in order to get more fish i have to travel a long way, and if i buy locally the price is 10 times as high, thus i would like to buy fish from the big city, thanks.

The number of fish is really going to depend on the size and type of fish you plan to add. Also, if you are planning on more than one fish of the same type (such as anthias) it's better to add the group at one time.

If I were in the same situation as you, I would order fish online.
