I order my supplies from Aquarium Guys. I've yet to find cheaper prices on test kits.

Aquariumguys has nice cheap prices, but I've heard some different not so good things about them. Things arriving damaged, poor customer service, not getting what was ordered, etc..

hi
i agree with the others with the test kit,it's a good one.
water changes will help keep the levels down,to help
the fish get through the cycle.
just remember not to wash out the filter at all during this time,
as the benifical bacteria will be growing in there.
good luck.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Update:

This morning the Clown Loach is almost 80% healed. The Parrot no longer has any growth or such visible. I'm still heading to the LPS to purchase a newer and better water testing kit. Thanks for your advice all!

Well here are the results from using the new Water Test Kit:

Nitrate = 0
Ammonia = 0
Nitrate = 10
Ph = 6.0

What are your thoughts?

Those results appear to indicate that your tank is cycled.

That's good to hear. How can I improve Ph levels?

What fish do you have in the tank? You may not want to mess with the pH. A stable pH is always safer than a fluctuating one, so attempting to raise it could prove disastrous.
