The water has cleared and I took a cup of water to my lfs and they tested it for me for free =). They did use a strip test but I am waiting on the kit to come in...

Here is what they found..

Ammonia 0ppm
Nitrate - 40ppm
Nitrite - 10.0ppm
Total Hardness - 250ppm
Total Alkalinity Buffering Capacity - 300ppm
pH - 8.4ppm

She said the only thing that was out of the norm was my Nitrite's and thats because its still in its Cycle...

She said the pH was normal for my area? What do you guys think about these numbers?
