Once the tank is stocked, we recommend you switch to Prime water conditioner by Seachem. This product detoxifies ammonia, like that released when chloramine is split into chlorine and ammonia.
Prime also nuetralizes metals, stimulates slime coat... great stuff! Its the only chemical I'll add to my tanks.
Nitrate rising with no increase in nitrite or ammonia is very good. Nitrite is still very high, but time, patience and a little luck should set you straight.
