I've got the API master test kit.
yeah when you do the cycle with fish they there will be casualties and most of the time they all die, even the hardy fish. I suggest that you cycle the aquarium with frozen shrimp. I cycled my 20 gallon aquarium with a 1 inch shrimp and it all worked out great the aquarium cycled in about 3 weeks. I did a fishless cycle so if you have any fish left take them out and take them back to the store or put them in an established take or something before they die your nitrite levels are really really high an soon they will die because those levels are way past toxic.
that the test kit we all use here so its a good one!
