Greg Watson Ferts

I recieved all my ferts today but my plants won't be here till Friday. Should I start dosing anything in the tank or wait till I've planted? I'm using 100% RO water adding RO right. I'm still waiting for my nitrate kit to come in so not sure what that reading is? I have 7 danios and my tank has been running for 1 week. I am using C02 and 2wpg of light.

Ammonia: 0
Nitrites: 0
Nitrates: ?
PH: 7.2
GH: 8
KH: Not sure how with Red sea test kit?

Wait for the plants to arrive and don't start on your macros (NO3, PO4) until your nitrIte bottoms out and the tank is cycled - shouldn't take long once you add plants.

Good luck!
