Thanks.

Also, i have a LOT of brown algae on a couple of pieces of decor.

Can i swish them in the old tank water tomorrow to get rid of it?
Can i also wipe the front of my tank cause it's there also?

I always wipe it off the glass/tank/decor right before I siphon. I usually let the water settle a bit, first.

Yup, you can either wipe them with your thumb or whatever in the water before a siphoning or you can take them out, swish them and rub them in old tank water you just took out. Either way will be fine so whatever seems to work for you. Don't worry you're not going to rub off your BB, it's super adhesive so they'll be fine ^_^

Today's readings...after dosing to 4ppm yesterday

0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 80-160 nitrates

I did a 75% water change.....nitrates were still at 30ish

did another 50% change..i'm hoping to have it around 15??

I will add my fish in a couple of hours.
