Hi all. We have just set up our first tank. Cycled for 3 weeks and all tests are good. We put 6 fish in yesterday and checked the Amonia levels today and we are now at .25. Is this ok or do we need to add something?

been keeping cichlids for 20+ years and am only now partially ignorant.

from what I know(which according to the wife ain't much!) new tank needs fish to cycle OR.. some bio balls from a friend's set-up or something like that.

It's how it's worked for me. However, when I first started the dude at my LFS gave me a handful of substrate to put in my filter to get things going.

It worked for me but you're also listening to a guy who never bought one test kit.(just don't tell anyone else here I said that)
