Newbie question

Recommended Posts

Hey all! newbie question i know, but im just making sure, im supposed to wait for diatoms to be gone before adding fish right? the tank has been up for a little over 5 weeks now and it's growing lots of hair algae so i'm wanting to get fish in there, but i've still got a bit of a diatom coating, though it's started to clear up a bit with water changes. 

do i need to wait until it's all gone or is it okay to put fish in ? thanks in advance! : )

What are your Ammonia, Nitrite & Nitrate levels? Have you been monitoring them? and when did the Ammonia Peak, Nitrites become visible, and Nitrates explode?
