Ok, just retested the nitrates. It had a very slight orange tint, but not enough for me to say it was much over 0. And I shook for all I was worth both times (30 seconds and 1 minute). My arm feels like jello lol.
el337 is a great source of knowledge. He has saved my fish from a horrible death. xExcellent, thank you! We'll get the Stability today and get that started. And no water changes until the ammonia and/or nitrites are up to 1. I appreciate all of your advice, el337. You've been a huge help
Oh sorry, I meant for the filter ha ha.
