I did all three just cuz I was really excited. Technically, you can start testing Trites once the ammonia starts to fall and then test for Trates once Trites start to fall. But testing for all 3 the whole time just gives you extra practice at doing the tests, so go for it if you want to. And I keep a journal of all my test dates and results, along with any actions I do, like PWC. There's an app that will graph it all out for you if you want to enter it all in. It's called Aquaplanner. It will also keep track of what's In Your tank and the date you added it to the tank. There's other stuff you can do with it too, but I don't make full usage of it, really. I do like that it'll graph my temps, levels, etc. sorry, I'm getting a little too chatty here. Lol.

The a/c?? Where do you live? Must be someplace warm. Lol. I'm in Michigan, so no a/c right now needed for us. Haha. Some people use washed off water bottles that have been frozen, and put them in the tank to cool it down. They'll cool off water and then you can re-freeze them and re-use. A lot cheaper then buying a chiller.
The app isn't mandatory, just nice way to keep track. You can also use just any notebook. Just make columns for date, ammo, trite, trate, pH, temp, etc and you'll be able to easily glance down the columns and see if its stable.

Just try a small clip-on fan blowing across the surface of the water since its only a little bit too warm. That should work. Much cheaper than a chiller!!
