    Well not a big update but, the tank is still cycling and I think I'm at the final stages of the cycle Ammonia is at 0ppm , Nitrite is at about 0.25 ppm ( hasn't changed since I added the Biospira),Nitrate is 0-5 ppm.

    Question... I'm going to transfer all of my livestock over after the tank is cycled i have a LTA can i add it along with everything else or do I have to wait? Thanks

    @jsker today my ammonia is at 0.25 ppm, nitrite is 0.25 ppm, and nitrite is about 5.0 ppm is it okay to add fish?

    You want ammonia and nitrate to be consistently 0 before you add any fish :)

    Small update today my Ammonia is still at 0.25 ppm which makes me think its giving me a false positive reading. I only think this because my nitrates have risen to 20 ppm. The tank has been up and running a little over a month and I'm dosing stability daily. Any suggestions? thanks
