Everyone starts their tank differently but the most common step is to definitely wait to put any fauna in until your tank is fully cycled. This could take a few days up to a few weeks depending on...

They will make tasty little snacks for your fish. Also if you've never shipped fish before I recommend either checking to see if your LFS will buy them from you or sell them locally.
