Hi guys

I would not worry about parameters now unless you are in a super hurry to add fish; I'd recommend waiting 2-3 weeks before adding any fish. Are you doing a fishless cycle? If so, an approach that has always worked for me is to throw in a couple whole pieces of market prawn, let sit in the tank for 4-5 days, then remove. Wait a couple days and then you should be able to add fish no problem. It is when you are ready to add fish that you should focus on the water parameters.

Thanks for the feedback.

I'm going to grab a bottle tonight to see if this thing really works.

Now the big question is: Tetra safestart or stability?

Either way I think i'll let the tank run its course naturally...can't seem to get a definite answer whether bacteria in a bottle actually works.
