    I think that you may have started a mini cycle some how. Keep on eye on Nh3/4, No2 and No3. Luna

    Yeah, thats what I thought. You started a mini cycle some how. Your NH3 is at 0(which is good), your N02 seems to be going down and your No3 should start to decrease also. Just dont add anyhting for the next 2-3 weeks and test for No2 and No3 every 5th day. Dont freak out if your No3 stay at 20ppm. I've had 20ppm for yrs and my tank is doing great. Luna
