yeah i suppose, im pretty sure my LFS uses the strips tho..

I was just lookin at my tank and i noticed very tiny white things crawling all over the glass.. not sure how many to be exact but theyre really tiny, like the size of the tip of a pen. any idea what they are? no way to take a picture, wayy too small for that.

Well if ya got pods, it's a good sign. People may not like this answer, but it's an opinion- I would
pull the shrimp, have your LFS test the water, and drop a hermit crab in there. It's not like you're adding 7 fish and an entire CUC...

My tank is cycled.. I'm an idiot lol I didn't shake the nitrate test tube enough afterwards allowing it to mix lol so they aren't 0ppm.. they're 10-20ppm! Lol
