During cycle, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and after that just nitrate until your tank stabalizes.

You need test kits for: ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, calcium, magnesium, alkalinity, and pH as a minimum. If you choose to use a pH meter, you don't need this kit.

Very good info, I also read an article confirming that good quality water parameters including things like calcium, magnesium and Alkalinity is just as essencial for fish as for corals.

PS: It is just easier to maintain these levels as they don't get used up as quickly, due to the lack of corals, but they still drop slowly.
