I'm alright. My temp port came out and I lost a bit of blood. They just wanted to monitor my daughter overnight to make sure it didn't affect her. Good thing, too. She's too small to be born yet!

Ammonia - looking closer to .50 but still inbetween that and 1.
Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - 0

Ok well ot and none of my business but as a l and d nurse I'm curious. Port? How far along? Are you doin okay now and drinking plenty of water?

Okay nursing part is over. I've been out with a broken leg for 4 weeks and I'm dying to get my hands on a pregnant lady and have a baby hahahaha.

I'm 6.5 months along. I've been home for a while now and drinking lots of water. Tank is showing slightly lower ammonia but no nitrites or nitrates yet. The fish are more active than ever today and a lot less shy of me observing.

If your ammonia is decreasing, let it be. But try not to let it get to 0.5ppm ever again. Watch for nitrite, keep it below 0.5ppm as well. These are conservative numbers. It's going very quickly. Don't you think?

Tetra instructions allow up to 1.0ppm ammonia for as long as a week. I find that criminally abusive of the livestock.

Glad to hear you're doing well.

Why is my ammonia decreasing without nitrites or nitrates, though?

I wish they'd just put my port in but they don't want to while I'm still pregnant. /:

Cycling is organic and doesn't always look like the mechanistic explanations we use ...especially with TSS and other bottled bacteria.

Thank you for keeping us apprised. I expect to learn more.
