For the fish, I have several different kinds...2 tangs, 2 clown (nemo) fish, small angel fish, salt water mollies, and 2 others that I can't recall their names.
Filters: Emperor 400 and Emperor 280, Aquaclear 30 and Aquaclear 20, and a prizm skimmer deluxe.
Heater is set on 78 degrees
I used Bio-Sphere cycling chemical which is suppose to allow you to put fish in the tank on the next day. I've also used Cycle in there.
My readings are not "off the charts," but enough of a concern to where I hope I can get it through the cycling process faster, and reduce the levels, before the new coral/reefs/fish/inverts come in. I don't have any reefs/corals/or inverts yet.
Thanks for your understanding and assistance.
