Thanks for all the advice!
I'm pretty sure I know what I'm doing , just needed some reassurance!

Update: added a few more kg's of LR, picked up the test kit (api master SW).
Results so far:
pH : 8
Ammo : 0.5
'trites : 5.0
'trates : 20
( this is after 6 days of setup)

Did a 10% pwc on day 7, then:
pH : 7.4
Ammo : 0.5
'trites : 1.0
'trates : 20

So looks like NitrItes are heading down I think NitraTes are going up but the pwc obviously lowered them.

Does it look like in doing this right? I seem to be based on all the reading I did before i even started! Haven't added anything to boost ammo (shrimp, food, ammo etc).
Also pH looks a little low to me, problem?

I'm in no rush to add stock, but wouldn't mind getting some CuC in there at some point.


Thanks!

Yeah it looks good!. Some folks dose back up to 4ppm ammonia and then test daily just to double check that the cycle is finished.
