Well no nitrites yet. I wonder if pulling that shrimp out stopped the cycle? Is that possible? Ammonia is at 1.25ppm still. Looks like I need to continue to be patient and wait to see what happens this week!

Still got my eye on that snowflake eel as a first addition! I can wait no problem for him, I think they are awesome!

I watch that show every week! That's cool you got to meet them.

An update to anyone interested, I just did my week 2 water test. I am happy with the results. Last week I didn't get any nitrites, but this week I have plenty to go around! maybe next week I can do my first water change and get my eel.

Well my ammonia is at 0, nitrites are at 0.25 and nitrates are at 20-30ppm. Think I could do a water change now and get me a fish?

Well looks like overnight was the last night needing to cycle. Trates are at 40. The rest is 0. How much of a water change should I perform tonight?

Well, did a 50% water change. Added more salt. Going to try and match 1.025 tonight so I can get my lion tomorrow.
