Buy some Bio Spira and let the tank cycle in about 24 hours, then keep everything..

To fail to plan is to plan to fail.

I think I just needed to wait a couple more days.
The ammonia has finished cycling
The nitrites are peaking

The test kit I have, nitrites interfere with the nitrate test.

The LR is starting to show some growth, and the algae is starting to disappear.
I added a bunch of chemical called cycle.

The store wouldn't take the fish back. They are swimming around with a lot of energy, and have great appetites.

Thanks for all your input.
