Actually, the nitrates are 10. Sorry, made a mistake with the number when I posted. Here it is again if a higher nitrate makes a difference.
Amonia = 0
Nitrites = 0
Nitrates = 10
High Range PH = 8.0 or 8.2?
PH: It looked to me like it was between 7.4, but another viewer said 8.0.
I don't know if it makes a difference but I used tap water, very hard water (in AZ).
I haven't decided which fish I want to have yet. I'm still working on a list to see what with work with what. Right now there is some very small 1" starter fish in there: 2 black tetras, 2 blood fin tetras, 2 clear tetras, a swordtail, 2 tiger barbs, a green cobra guppy, a sunrise guppy and a couple of platys. (I noted from another post to get only over 4" fish when getting the ones I want.)
I like the dwarf puffer yet after watching them eat live fish at the store I'm not sure how they'd work in a community tank, but they are on my "like most" list.
Thanks so much,
