, when would be a good time to add fish. Here are my readings for the last three days. I am hesitant to add fish and kill them again.

Ideally you will want the nitrites and ammonia down to 0. It could be that your system isnt fully cycled yet.

Do you know exactly why your fish died the first time? It may not just have been from your nitrogen levels.

Hi Chris,

I shocked them with to much Maxicrop. I add a cup vs a cap full. They were cheap goldfish, but I just want to things right this time before I add more.

Thanks

I'd continue with a fishless cycling until your nitrites go to 0. Just be patient.
