Nice, with that kind of patience you'll do very well in this hobby. Congrats on the new tank buddies!

Dropped to ZERO for nitrite I hope.

Did you do a large partial water change before adding livestock?
If not, plan on doing a couple of 20% PWC each week for a couple of weeks at least.

You probably will need to add some nori for the turbo's to eat too.

Congrats. Keep up the good work.
