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

    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.
