I thought the day would never come!

Its been a while since I have posted but I thought I would share. My cycle is finally complete!

Ammonia = 0
Nitrite = 0
Nitrate = 0
Calcium = 400
pH = ~8.0 (a little low but should come up)

Congrats

Make sure you get a nh3 source in there soon so you don’t loose any of that bacteria

Your ph is fine and I wouldn't stress if it doesn't come up any time soon, just don’t over buffer trying to get it up or you could cause it to crash.

If you had your lights off during the cycle that is probably the main cause for the slightly lower ph.

I have added a pair of clowns and a cleaning crew. I have a yellow tang in a QT which, assuming all goes well, will be added in 2 weeks.

a 4 week QT period is a bit safer. Has the YT been in QT 2 weeks already. Also, normally you would want to add the YT last. Are there any more fish you are adding? What size tank do you have?
