Forgot to add FTS! How could I!?!?!?! I had to test pH because I didn't add any buffer to my RO so it came down to around 8.0-8.2
Identified on another forum as a common bristle worm nothing to worry about. Yay!

What kind of light is that? I like the blue tint it has.

Updates!
The tank had the spike and I am going to do a water change tomorrow to get the nitrites and ates down. Just waiting for a diatom bloom to add a CUC. Added my Maxi Jet 600 for extra current. Beat a cyano problem. Waiting for coraline to grow and make my tank look better.
My water is cloudy a bit because I spent 2 days fiddling with the aquascape and it ended up looking similar to bear's old look. Can't wait to start building it up.
Ammonia: .25ppm, pH: 7.8-8.0, Nitrite: .25ppm
Pics!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Thanks! Ya the actinics make it look so blue on the camera but in real life it looks PURE white not like a paint but just pure light type white it is amazing.

Quick question: I am mixing some salt to do a small water change since the tank has cycled and I need to buffer a few things up and bring a few things down. What could I do with the water I take out? It feels a waste of money just to toss, but if I have no other options I guess I have to toss.

Think my bristles are dead too... Since I moved every rock and the ammonia spike so I'm looking for those.
