Just wondering, did your tank ever finish cycling? Or does it still have the occasional ammonia spike as the bacteria colonies struggle to keep it down.

Well i did 50 % water change now. and i need to go buy more water now. my question is should i do another test now? that i have changed 50%? and 2 weeks before i found 2 crabs at the beach on a seaweed and i put them on the tank they are doing fine you think that might cause the nitrie go up? or anything?

no that shouldn't cause it, if your tank was fully cycled it shouldn't make a difference, but it doesn't seem liek you've cycled yet and you don't have the bacteria that turns nitrites into nitrates

High Range pH: 7.8
Amonia: 0 ppm
Nitrite: 1.0 ppm
Nitrate: 0 ppm

It Looks Like The Nitrite Got Lower A Bit. I Think Thats Pretty Good. Ill Go Buy More Salt Water And Do The Other 50% And Run Another Test And See What Happens.

Have you ever had nitrates? When you set your tank up did yoy use live rock? Did you fishless cycle or buy the clown with the tank? Just trying to get a backstory so we can help you from here on out.
