Hey shift,

With those plants all the ammonia will be a thing of the past. No new nitrates either - you may need to dose it. Also, start dosing micronutrients. All the other pieces must be in place and working - adequate ligting, micronutrients, nitrates around 20 ppm, water circulation. The only thing left to do is populate, which you can do after the plants are planted and working. Congrats.

Steven
