Sounds like a plan kelsey. I just wanna do whats right is all. I really really want that fish. I would sacrifice the clowns if I could get the mandarin.

Did my water tests and came up with 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and about 10 nitrates.

What do you think it means? Should I keep throwing fish food in the tank and keep making sure ammonia disappears? My cuc is still alive and kicking too.

I think so too : ) so excited to see what your first addition will be!

I took a video of my mandarin eating frozen foods, I'll post it for you tomorrow since today i have my final (last one!!!) and then easter supper with the family. It will be a video of encouragement that it can be done haha.

Looks like you're cycled, Carey. Do you know who's gonna be the first resident there?

Thanks guys that all means alot to me.

I think I'm gonna order the 3 gobies next week, I'll still keep testing of course though, just to be safe.

is it normal to have ammonia for a few days and then no nitrites? I was gonna do a small water change to try to get the trates down a bit further but don't wanna mess anything up lol

Well im guessing because you had some die off it threw your bacteria out of balance a bit. Youre bac that converts ammonia was the first to die off then the others in succession but it wasnt sitting long enough to equal out so...

Well I'd say it can happen. I had an emergency filter replacement in my FW tank (I kept all the media though), and after that I saw .25 of ammo but no nitrites showed up. That's probably what you're seeing.
