    Decided to test my tap water for ammonia today to see if possible frustration for slow cycling and my two deceased fish.
    Tap water was a big zero on ammonia. A definite, no question bright solid yellow.
    So that's good and thought I might as well test the tank again while the kit is out-
    another big fat zero and bright no questions yellow!
    I was so happy and shocked that I thought as busy as I was all morning that I must have confused the test tubes. So I repeated the tank and ammonia is zero, nitrates hard to read but looks like 5.0
    Finally.
    Of course now I worry about adding more fish and what they call "mini-cycles".
    Any advice?, I have only 4 neon tetras, and one agassizi cory cat.

    Congrats in the cycle!

    As long as you only add a couple fish at a time, you shouldn't have to worry about mini cycles. :)

    Personally I would give it a week before upping the school of neons. Give the tank a week to stabile a bit.
