And ok jus tested fianlly. Results are as follows.


PH 7.8 or 8.0. Me and wife disagree lol.
Ammonia- 0
Nitrite- 0
Nitrate between 0 and 5 ( which I think it's dropped a lot since last test.

Should I try fish again?

Oh and on another note as I was cleaning the crap out of the tank today I decided to completely remove my seaclone skimmer being as it has not collected anything but green algae on the water return since I got it. Is a skimmer a must have?
