So now Cmor's got me worried. Is it ok that my ammonia only went up to around 1ppm? Is that still considered a cycle? Will my tank have more chances of crashing now since it's only cycled to 1ppm of ammonia? I left the whole unseasoned raw shrimp in my tank since two sundays ago, and it was almost completely dissolved. Only thing is.. everytime i tested the water, the color in the vial was in the .50 - 1ppm range?

I'm thinking maybe i should just start the cycle over again, and this time add pure ammonia. And add it until my tests read 3 or 4ppm.. then just let it go from there. What do you guys think? Better safe than sorry or am i ok with 1ppm of ammonia? I only plan to have two small fish anyways.. the yellow clown goby and the blue neon goby. They are pretty small and i'm sure their bioload is pretty much nothing. Still, i need more suggestions on what to do.

You should be fine then. You probably missed the peak when you didn't test

Zer0, just add things slowly to your tank and the bio-load and bacteria will balance itself up.

Yeah.. i plan on having around 3 montis, and definitely some acros. But i'm looking for really specific kinds of each.

Yeah definitely.

Also wanted to get a duncan and a blastos for the lps, but that would be it for the lps. The rest on the small rock structure would be rics, zoas, and a couple cool shrooms.

Maybe instead of Blastos look at Scollys? When you see my new one you'll start drooling. I guarantee it.
