Will new fish make ur ammonia go up? Mine went up to about .25 (shade tad lighter on color chart) all other levels are good. pH 8.3, trite 0, trate 0, Ca 475, alk 3.0.... Just keep an eye on it or PWC? Fish went in yesterday.

If your biofilter cant handle the additional fish bioload then yep, it will go up. I would do a pwc soon if it doesnt go back down today.

When you cycled you should have seen ammonia disappear overnight so the new ammonia reading should get turned into trites relatively quickly if you had a normal solid cycle.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

It's just a tad up. Not 0, but not quite .25... I'll test again. Maybe it was a bad test...

Good news. Means your cycle was solid. I always worry when adding the first few fish that my bioload cant handle them. Just re check in another day or so to be sure. You did add quite a few fish at once...

I'm surprised my trates are still 0.... I've been told it's impossible to keep them at 0. And I did feed those guys like 3 times yesterday. They ate it in no time.. The tang is back to hiding.... Again.

Your tank is stillnew so trates may show up sooner than later.

Most of my tanks run at 0 -5 trates and I overfeed like a devil. LOL

My 55g did run consistently at 0 though. It can be done, its just not the norm in my experience and from what I read on here.
But good job so far.

The tang will come out soon, he's just getting used to the tank I betcha.

My kole took about 4-5 days for hime to be active and he had the whole 125g to himself for at least a week when I first out him in adn it still took him awhile to get settled.

Just keep an eye on him as we all know tangs can be difficult fish at times...

He is eating and the fox face is always checking on him and trying to get him to swim with it.

My trates use to be 20-40.... I did pwc every week and finally go them down. Trates and the now gone GHA where my biggest challenges....
