tested my water today and it was decent, not perfect!
ammonia 1 (because I fed the BB last night)
salinity was way higher than my hydrometer said @ 1.033
I am currently re-soaking my hydrometer after washing it with very hot water and vinegar.
pH = perfect (tah dah)
nitrites were 0
nitrates were only 5ish
I bought NO fish, no cuc ... but I DID buy 3lbs of live rock, came home and rearranged my rock work and did a 40% pwc
with fresh to dilute the salinity. Will continue to test and keep this running account of my little journey into the wonderful world of SW
