If the cycle just completed, very low nitrates are possible, and will build as the bio filter does its job. You described a proper tank cycle, there's nothing unusual there.

My advise would be to do nothing at all for a few days. Your probably at a point where your levels are still a bit unstable. You should be reading some nitrates though. Perhaps your not completely cycled yet. Let things chill out for a few days. I wouldn't add any more fish for a few weeks. You want your bacteria colony to get stronger first. Good luck . Hope this helps

Checked my PH and water harness everything shows fine. I have water in a cup to sit overnight for a more accurate reading. I'm not adding anything for a couple of days then I'll get rid of my sharks. Thanks for your help all of you. This is by far the best and only website I've found so far for advice. Thanks everyone!
