I don't know what you were using in the previous 8 weeks but I would think this would surely get things a moving! Perhaps before you didn't have enough? Did you shrimp cycle? How much lr before?

i just tested the water everthing at ZERO. except nitrate which is 5.0. Friday, maybe sooner i'll go buy some fish like clown or something.

So end the end of this battle of cycling, i have won. It wasnt easy it wasnt cheap (or maybe it was ) but im sure glad its over,
and maybe, no surely it is worth it.

Your tank has just finished the cycle and will probably do a mini cycle due to adding the LR. The anemone was a bad purchase. They should only be added to stable mature tanks. I would try to find it a new home. Congrats on the LR purchase.
