New friends

It's been about a month since I started my Nano tank :) Everything's been looking really well, so today I decided to add some friends. Meet my Lemon Damsels - Loki, Olaf, and Lada!

Ammonia = 0
Nitrate = 0
Nitrite = 0
pH = 8.0
Salinity = 1.025
Temperature = 80F

I'm looking to add some Mangroves to the back of the tank. Something like this:

Everything has been going well! Levels are normal, temperature is stable. My army of snails just had three sets of babies.

Day 6,7&8

Nothing interesting to post. Past few days I have been letting the bacteria flourish, letting the critters help balance the chemicals, and keeping up with the salinity levels. So far, everything seems to be balancing out.

Day 5

5/30/14 7PM

Tank's clear and all the critters were hiding under the sand. Salt's been low and now nitrate's up (probably due to the snails added). Sorry no pictures today! :(

specific gravity = 1.024
salinity ppt = 33
pH = 8.2
nitrate = 2.5
nitrite = 0.15
ammonia = 0

Day 4

5/29/14 2:30PM
An army of snails has been added, along with a hermit crab. Dead rock was added and now waiting for zombification.

Specific gravity = 1.024
Salinity ppt = 33

Day 3

Tank's all cleared up! And more Bristle Worms appeared.

Day 2

5/27/14 5:00PM
pH = 8.0
specific gravity = 1.026

Some Bristle Worms appeared from the live rock I bought at Petco. (I did remove them because I think they're gross looking..)
