I think I'm done cycling since my Nitrites are reading 0 for two weeks now. Here is what my parameters are:

Temp 78.3F
Phosphate ULR - 0.16
Alkalinity - 8.8dKH
Nitrates - 5.0ppm
Nitrite - 0.0ppm
Ammonia - 0ppm
Salinity 35ppt/1.027

Question on the phosphate reading....is that to low or high? I have never tested that before 20+ yrs ago when I had my first salt water tank. Thanks.

Phosphate is ok, could be lowered, but not a huge concern yet. How did you cycle the tank. If you added ammonia or food and let it do it’s thing you are done cycling.
