Ok, i need to add more info.
On the 15th after i added the filter media my nitrite readings were sky high and hardly any ammonia. Then nitrites were 0 (didn't have master kit at the time, didn't know nitrates) then everything was 0 except for ammonia because i had used flakes in a mesh bag.
Now (messed up on readings, couldn't see the colors correctly) ammonia 0.3mg/l - nitrite 0.2mg/l - nitrate 70mg/l - ph a stable 7.4 for almost 3 weeks (tap water is this)
Tap water has 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and 0 nitrate
