What are you using to test your water parameters? Most of us here discourage using test strips due to inaccuracy and inconsistency of results, and prefer liquid reagent test kits.The early bird may get the worm, but it's the second mouse that gets the cheese.

I am using strips, but after doing some reading yesterday, decided to go buy a liquid test kit. Just have to wait for my husband to get off work on wed, one car fam... I have an ammonia alert also, but as I have read they are not very accurate, I use it purely as a quick glance throughout the day to make sure I dont have a major spike. I test every morning, and every night. I am a bit paranoid, and doing everything I can to ensure that my fish stay alive and comfortable.

Glad to hear you are going to upgrade. Strips seem so convenient, but not worth the tradeoff in accuracy, especially while you're cycling!The early bird may get the worm, but it's the second mouse that gets the cheese.
