The first one is phosphate idk if I even need to test for that?

So if I'm correct on my colours, you can tell better, you have a nice ammonia level to start the cycle, but it's not into the final stages yet. Stop testing daily as the kits cost money. Wait a week and check your nitrates then.

Good luck
I believe that's the order I did it in but with the correct bottles first
