How long should I leave cuttle bone? in my fish tank? I brought one today so hopefully this will help with my PH levels.

I would put it in the filter if there is room and leave it till pH reaches 7.2 or it totaly dissolves.

I don't think there is enough room to put it in the filter but i did put it in stocking. Would this also help my plants too? Can it make the water change colours too?

Ammonia 1ppm
Ph: 7.6 bit dark according to the card
Nitrite; 1ppm - 2ppm
Nitrate: 20ppm

Yay!! Sooo with my tank can I use frozen blood worms to get the ammonia up?

what little i know (sounds strange coming from me)
pH is good (depending on what fish you want - if you still have that cuttle bone in there, good time to remove it

your numbers are good (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate) - not ready for fish yet, but sounds like soon

letting frozen bloodworms rot in the tank is way to increase ammonia as well. (anything to rot will do this actually)
(i've even heard of the 'tinkle' method, ... although that was given with advice/warning not to tell anyone so no one is making jokes or rumors behind your back)
