Okay will do.

Oh one more question, how often should I do my water changes since it's still cycling?

Never. Doing water changes during a cycle will only prolong the cycle. After do a 50% waterchange then for the next month 20% every week then from there on out 10% every week or 20% every two weeks.

Okay thanks a lot.
Gota say though, he really wanted to make a sale. He was trying to sell me everything from the buffer to a mating pair of clown fish for 80 bucks.
