Kelly, your tank sounds amazing..such a lovely size.
In your OP you said that your nitrates rose and then fell...did you mean nitrItes? Nitrate shouldn't be falling during a cycle..you want it to climb as it shows that the cycle is progressing.
Great news that your ammonia as dropping to zero so quickly, is your nitrite doing the same thing?
And my opinion on your how to introduce them query..for me it would depend what ppm you have cycled to. If you have been adding a lot of ammonia then the 2 fish should be fine to go in together, but if you haven't been adding a lot of ammonia then add the fish one by one.
Good luck with it
