Good advice by ILB and Mo.... except for the advice to use salt.

Salt should only be used to treat injuries and finrot. Even then, only after having tried warm, clean water as a first attempt at treatment.

Salt can build a resistance which will make it less effective if you need to use it someday as treatment. It also stresses osmoregulation.

I just posted a new thread. I think my cycle is complete! I have a Nitrate reading, but I'm wondering if I should do another water change right now. Thanks all for your help earlier. If you wouldn't mind giving me one last piece of advice, that'd be super.
