Hi, I'm currently setting up my new tank, I want to use the probiotic method and have purchased the probiotic salt. My initial stocking will be without corals and only a coupe of clowns. The sump will hold a skimmer and Sera Siporax. Will I be ok with the probiotic salt from day one or will I get issues with bacteria blooms/die off due to the lack of nutrients to feed the probiotics?

For tank without corals you can use Sea Salt.

I will be adding SPS corals after a few weeks of setting up

too early to add SPS, softies maybe.

I would recommend to wait at least 6 months.
