I'd really recommend testing the bio-filter at least one more time before stocking. I'd advise to dose it up to 2ppm, and at this time tomorrow if it's at zero ammo and 0 no2...then we can be 100% certain you're good to go. I'm super nervous about stocking immediately after finishing because crazy things can happen at the last second just like you saw with your pH.

Congrats though

Hey congratulations! As Eco said it's safer to test once or twice more just to be sure. Congratulations again!
