An ammonia spike of 2 isn't ideal, but it's better than some I've seen listed on this site. I would just take it extremely slow when adding fish. 1 at a time and 2-3 weeks apart to allow more BB to build up.

I wont be adding fish for weeks yet. I will be adding a few snails and hermits to prep the sand bed then will be adding fish after QT for a fee weeks. I have added an ammonia source (shrimp) on 2 separate occasions over the last week and ammonia will not rise anymore than zero i tested after at 2, 6, 12, and 24 hours after introducing it
