Yeah it turns out I was reading the refractometer wrong. There was always this gray line in between the white and blue and I was reading either side of that line. Now I turn the eyepiece until there is no gray line in between and read where the blue meets white.

The SG is at 1.023.

My fishes appear fine, but I know the 1ppm nitrite isn't good for them.

Man, looks like more water changes are in my immediate future. I had it stable for like it's first week after cycling but then I changed things and messed things up lol

amm: 0.5
nitrite: 0.5
nitrate 20

If the nitrates didn't keep shooting back up to 20 I'd be worried. At least I have the peace of mind knowing the nitrogen cycle is in action and should be stable soon.

But boy is it a lot of work! And boy do I feel bad for my fishy friends. I hope I don't kill any before I stabilize.

I would suggest leaving your old LR in there until the levels stable.
