I wouldn't waste your test kit on the pH until the cycle is done, it will go a little whacky during it. You should start to see some nitrItes soon.
I love the rock work, excellent job!

Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0.25
Sal 1.020 (dropped a bit, I guess from all the RO/DI top offs)

There are pods everywhere all different sizes from "." to "===" big. Got like 12 featherdusters all over the LRs I picked up. But there is also aiptisa 3 i count so far.

Can't wait to get some stuff in the tank... Staring at my LR to see if new stuff pop out is getting a bit boring

Your SG shouldn't be dropping. The salt stays, the water evaporates.
