Do you have seeding material available from another tank? That always helps, are you planning on a fishless cycle?

On a separate note, what are your stocking plans? Planted?

No no seeding material unless someone is in the Tampa area and can hook me up with some as for plants I still have stock lighting and no co2 YET but it will come I might be getting a 75 gal soon and if I do I will put the co2 and good lights in that instead but I'm not sure yet if I am getting it was thinking about putting some java fern in it because its a low light plant but we will see later

My first dose of ammo was 6-3 and today I check my levels to find a happy 4ppm ammo 5 ppm nitrite and about 5 ppm of nitrate (I over dosed yesterday and didn't have time for a pwc but I'm going tomorrow to get some ph down and add that to help the bacteria
