No. If the tank can process ammonia, you are good to add fish any time in the near future. Go slow and good luck.

You still haven’t added fish?! Add only one or two every couple of weeks. Don’t overload your bio capabilities, they have to build over time and this is done slowly.
 

Does it matter to you whether your fish are captive-bred or wild caught?
