First fish and test results

Well after 7 weeks of cycling and everyones great advice on here 4 days ago I put my first fish in a blue chromis
So far it's active happy eating and looks healthy,

After 3 days I tested the water here are the results

Ph. 8.4
Nitrite. 0ppm
Nitrate 0ppm
Ammonia 0
Salinity 1.023
Calcium 520ppm
Phosphate .5 ppm

Also did 15% pwc

So far I think it's going well
How long do u think I should wait before adding a pair of clowns ?

Cheers
Andrew

I hope your cycle is okay, I mean with no readings at all, I wonder if your benificial bio is still okay. Be interesting to see how you go with readings now you have a fish. I would monitor for a week or so before adding clowns. I am sure others may have differing ideas.

I think waiting a couple weeks between introducing new live stock would be best. You don't want to add to much at once and overload the tank. Good luck
