Update: I have good news! From the looks of the test kit the tank seems to be cycled.. As of this morning here are my readings.
pH: 8.0
Ammonia: 0ppm
Nitrite: 0ppm
Nitrate: 20ppm
Salinity: right between 1.024 and 1.023 but closer to 1.023

So now what? Lol

Sweet! Should I do a water change? And is it ok for the nitrates to be around there?

What would you guys suggest in a cuc I want to stay away from Hermits and definitely want a shrimp. Possibly a peppermint shrimp. I'll be going to my lfs after work to see what they have and probably get some snails maybe

Shrimp is good, they aren't considered a CUC though. Turbo Snails, Astraea, Bumble Bee, Cerith, Nass Snails, all would be a good choice. Mix em match em, doesn't matter.
