So, weeks later, and the water has cycled!
No ammonia, no nitrate, just a lot of nitrite, which I have decreased through water changes.
Hoping to add my first cleanup crew later today.
Will post updates on how it's going every few weeks.

U don't want to do water changes during a cycle. If u still have nitrites wait till they are all gone and only change for nitrates

Yeh I meant that the other way around lol had a load of nitrate, no ammonia or nitrite. It's all good.
Got a fire shrimp, a cleaner shrimp, and a hermit crab now, and they're doing well

Been a while, I know! Still only have my cleaner shrimp, fire shrimp, and hermit crab. Everything was and is fine, all levels and temp and such.
However, today I have noticed my cleaner shrimp shaking sharply sometimes, and literally being sick. I have no idea what could be wrong, I haven't changed their three types of food I feed them, or anything else for that matter. The other two seem fine, just my cleaner.
Anyone have any clues why he is being sick??
