I know you know what you are doing , but you are stocking far too quickly. One fish a month is about right , maybe two small ones at a pinch , it lets the LR catch up with the bioload ( adding extra prawns won't help , but will give you ammonia spikes ) .. the bacteria appear slowly in the LR.
You can't rush it , seriously ...
Can you just clarify please , in the last 3 weeks , you have added 5 fish , of which two have died ?
Sorry to hear of the deaths , but if you stock slower , you will end them.
A QT tank is a good idea too.
