Thanks for info. My ammonia did spike about 6 days ago and then went back down. I cycled my tank using 2 raw shrimps. I didn't add the lr until the ammonia was all gone and my nitrite test showed 0 also. Other than that, my tank has been fine.

I'll get another could of days, do a water change and then add some hermit crabs.

Thanks, again.

I would definitely watch the phosphate levels. You probably already know this but, the phosphate test was the last test I learned. Keeping phosphates low will help with the algae spreading.
