Picture of it after my new rockscape that I like much much better along with the extra sand with my Double bright on it, The water is all cloudy from doing the sand but has cleared up nicely already.

Looks good but you should try and keep a small gap between your rockwork and any pane of glass to help with flow, cleaning, and to help prevent some scratches

You did the shrimp method right? It's hard to say if it's truly cycled unless you can dose ammo to 2ppm and it drops to zero in 24 hours. You are clearly either close or there... But without knowing how quickly ammo gets cycled, it's impossible to tell if you have enough bacteria yet.

If it were me, I would wait a tad longer, just to be sure that my first two fish weren't casualties. Then yes, do a pwc and get the nitrates down even more.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I am going to the store today to get some CUC but trying to decide what to get. I want to get some snails, Hermits, and maybe a few peppermint shrimp.
