Here are some results after a few days:

Ph 7.9
Ammonia 0.15
Nitrite 0.10
Nitrate 2.5

Ammonia and nitrite traces are very small, almost zero, even with small shrimp still decomposing. Are these normal at this stage?

Also, pH is up at 8.2.

Lastly, I got two koralia 240 powerheads and ready to make a light purchase tomorrow at the LFS, thanks for the recommendations!
