ok guys tested the nitrate and amonia nitrate came out a little just a little if any over zero amonia came out at zero i have a good bit of live rock and base rock and sand from the 55 gal in there plus filters and some of the water i think the tank has cycled unless i just skipped the cycle which is wat i was aiming for it has loads of worms and snails at night and coepods already the domino damsel is doing well is it safe to add fish now?
