Ideally you want to keep your nitrates under 20ppm if possible. But if you have tap water that contains nitrates that may not be possible, so in that case you'd want to keep them under 40ppm

I would add three, wait 10-14 days and if your parameters are good, add the second group of 3.

Oops...sorry about that. I was rushing because I was at work and totally misread what you wrote.
