I paid 250 for a 48" T5 light that has 2 10000K lights and 2 actinic lights plus 4 lunar bulbs for night viewing.

Results today! I realized I was looking at the freshwater card for ammonia so what I thought was 0.25 was actually 0

Ammonia 0ppm
Nitrite 0ppm
Nitrates are at 0ppm too :S

I would say you should be good to go. It looks like you finished your cycle based on how was last test was. I would say grab some snails or something and put them in. Start out with some snails for a few days and see how it goes. They will eat some of the bacteria found in your live rock but also like pellets and...dead stuff.

If you aren't going to be putting anything to eat the food, don't add any. All that will do will create a ton of excess nutrients and you'll have an algae outbreak. Don't want that.
