IMO the API master tester kit is now singularly the most important thing on your shopping list. whilst you are right, as some one like byron can inform you better of, you may not kill your fish bad water conditions, especially during the cycling period can cause your fish long term unseen damage.
So you need to keep on top of the testing especially early on to keep them levels safe.
As i think i've mentioned before i was doing 50-60% water changes a day early on to keep mine down, sometimes twice.
What did you wash the 5pound bag in? dechlorinated waster? Just you dont want to have washed it in normal tap water and then effectively put chlorine in your tak and possibly killed some/all of your bacteria in the ''live'' gravel. I'm not sure if that would kill it, but i assume it would.
(sorry i just kinda posted the worst case etc on the aboves, but better than going blind IMO)
YAY! loving the way it looks, and LOVING the fact that you have a small piece of cabomba floating about- that is the bane of my life! haha.
