UPDATE:

So, I am still trying to fix that leak with the return tubing. I will be away this weekend, so would you all recommend dosing more ammonia to keep they cycle going, or is it ok? Also, should I have my lights on at this point, (I know I wasn't supposed to have them on during the cycle).

Also, since I am still in the 8 week process for letting ich die off (in my 34g) I am going to temporarily going to use my 55g as a QT (Once Clown + Hippo are moved to 125g). My problem with the tank is that the nitrates are too high. I am working on lowering them by PWCs, but would it help to remove the sand? The sand was bought as "live".

I was thinking I could wash the sand out (to remove nitrates), and put in back in after I temporarily used the tank as a QT for the first set of fish I plan to order from Liveaquaria.com.

I think that is everything! Thank you soo much for reading! . I know that this could possibly sound confusing, so if you need me to clarify things, please ask. Thanks!!!

Do you guys think I should add ammonia tonight?
I haven't added any since last Thursday (I think). Didn't get anything done this weekend since I was away. I really hope I can fix the leak with the plumbing, and bring down the nitrates in the 55g.

Thanks everyone!

Yeah, no fish yet. I still need to figure how to stop my plumbing from leaking, and I need to do that HUGE water change, which I figure will be about 62.5 gallons. LOL. Thanks!!
