Ive been keeping a close on my tank parameters recently, since getting a new Betta. Before putting him in the tank, I let it run fishless for a bit. The tank has a heater and a filter. I used stability and prime to help with beneficial bacteria and such. Owning my previous fish, I had a problem with ammonia and trying to get it down. But I got ammonia down to 0 finally since yesterday. I tested nitrites and nitrates and they both read 0, too. I use the API liquid test kit. I know I did the tests correctly. Is it normal to have 0 readings on all 3? Maybe I’ll re test tomorrow. I’m still new to fish keeping, but I’m getting better! Also, here’s a picture of my new Betta, Shimmer!

He looks just like my male Beta, Venus, did when I first brought him home! he turned a dark blue and his fin/tail tips turned red. You should be excited!
