should i wait??
Used up all my tests except ammonia.
My old LFS has gone out of business. Prices at the new big box are ridiculous.
Watching Amazon for the API master kit.
Price just spiked a couple days ago.
Wait it out? Yes/No and reason.

I hardly use my testers since my tanks have been established for years now. If your tanks are well established I think it would be fine to wait for the prices to drop.If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

Thanks for answering.
Well I just stocked the 125 in my sig. But I reused the filter (with biowheel) and put most of the gravel from their old tank into a basket with air bubbling through it.
Tested ammonia a couple hours after feeding, read 0 so I assume there is enough bb in the biowheel + gravel.
But eventually I would like to know how the nitrate levels change over time.
Even if I ordered now it would take well over a week to arrive.

good call. Even though you used established media, it's still a new tank and bound to be a bit unstable for a while, especially if you added stock. Better safe than sorry and you'll sleep better at night if you know exactly what your water perimeters are. :o)30 g FW planted:corys, ABNP, blue angel, harleys, zebra danios, apple & nerite snails
