I am done cycling my 50 gallon tank. I know what I want to add. I want to know at what pace I should add the fish. Should I add 1 at a time 2 at a time? More? I know not to overload to quick so I am just hoping for some suggestions.

If you cycled using ammonia and dosed to 2-3ppm then you can add all your fish at once and is actually recommended.

If you introduce a fish he'll claim a territory. Then each new fish you add after that he'll fight it off. If you add all your fish at one time then there are no established territories and the chaos of everyone attempting to establish dominance and territories all at the same time can be less stressful to individual fish.
