Hi guys. Since my last update I have done a 20 % water change.

My new results are:

Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 25 -50

Can I get a fish yet? If not.. what is my next step?? Just wait it out??

Nice job shel.....u might want to test the bacteria in that tank....some ppl suggested here in other thread by adding pinch of fish food in that tank and see how it goes.....but from my experience with my tank, i already add a pair of clownies when i get those result like yours.....LOL
but bear in mind to add live stock slowly to avoid any increase in ammonia....

shel how high did your ammonia level get when you cycled your tank? I'm in the process as well and seeing a reading of 1.0. good job cycling your tank!
