Sorry to hear about the layoff deal. Job market is not good. Your reef is an endless source of entertainment. It will continue to grow and evolve. Wait till you start adding corals and watch them feed. Just saw my Australian Acan eat a piece of shrimp this morning. I sat in amazement!

Yeah I'm just worried about the nitrites being so high that it'll kill everything

Did it look like this? If it did its a Cirolanid, bad. They attach to fish and suck their blood like a tick. I trapped mine with a water bottle that I cut the top off of and inverted inside it. Cut a 1/4 inch hole in the plastic cap. Put a piece of frozen shrimp and latex it on its side on the bottom of the tank. Built a sand ramp up to the opening. Presto, no more Cirolanids.

Hopefully most of the stuff will survive the cycle.

Could have been a simple copepod. They are good. Sand sifters eat them.

Ok I put the legs on the light. One of the fans stopped working so I removed it and I'm gonna go to radio shack and find something that will work.

The legs are cracked the pieces of plastic that keep them from moving is cracked on 3 of them. I tightened the crap out of em so we will see
