Dosed amm this am after the results I posted. Here is the result 16hrs later

Surprised the NO3 went up after all LOL
nitrites as always a pain in the but... Any ideas what that pH is supposed to be like? Looks like 7.8-8.0 to me

it was almost blue today, but due to dosing of ammo it went back up again. Ammo hardly stays up longer than 2hrs, so I guess my ammo-eating bacteria must be pretty tough
Nothing to do about the nitrite-eating bac as all I can do is wait. It's there and it's doing it's job... just not fast enough LOL
gonna check again in the AM and see how is changed and how fast. Wondering if my nitrate is going down again like magic as it did before LOL

Thats funny. While my tank was cycling, my wife would come up to every time I did testing and with tremendous concern ask me "Is everything ok". LOL Got to say it was sure nice when I was finally able to net the two clowns and get them in the tank.

Yesterday when the nitrites showed up slightly purple he started arguing with me that is was basically blue LOL but I'm glad I waited. I thought this moment would never come...
I'm gonna add slowly though. First I wanna get my tang out of QT bc he does look depressed in that tiny thing.

Absolutely go slow. Due to lack of cash I have been forced to go slow but it really has helped. My tests have all remained perfect, all my fish have made themselves at home within an hour or two and everything just keeps perking along. Very minor speed bumps here and there but nothing like what I have read in some of these posts. I feel pretty lucky.

Hope ur luck will be rubbing off

Did a minor water change just in case. Kole is still in drip aclimation together with Randall and his shrimp. Gonna do a 3-4 hr acclimation time due to the shrimp. Also dimmed the light down to only purple and blue, and one 6000K bulb so they won't have too much of a shock. May add my Xenia and bubble anemone bc they are WAAAY overdue for some ether light. Will see
