Ok. Once your nitrites zero out, dose 3ppm every time ammonia drops to 0. Once ammonia and nitrites zero out three days in a row, do a 50-75% water change and add your fish. You can add them all at the same time.

Yes, though, if you don't do a water change between then and now they should be higher than 5. (;

Third day in a row of zero ammonia and zero nitrites!!! I've done a 50% water change and will be going to get the fish tomorrow! Thank you so much for all your help, I really appreciate you taking the time to answer all my questions.

Of course! Haven't got the bristlenose yet as the shop we went to didn't have any, got 8 neon tetra and 2 platy. I asked for 2 male and very stupidly trusted the "specialist". Once we got home I realised one is female, and the shop was shut by the time we got home so couldn't go back! Is it going to be disastrous?

Won't be a disaster. The fry will likely be eaten by the neons as soon asthey are born.
Good luck with your tank!

Thank you. I really don't like the thought of the fry being eaten. Is it inevitable that they will breed?
