What should i be looking for in the results of the water tests? I have a pH of 7, an ammonia of 0, nitrite of 0ppm, nitrate of 0ppm. Mind you, that this is tap water that i am thinking of putting in my tank and of course cycling. ANy responses would be most appreciated.

Jordan - Your ph is acceptable. And your tap water readings should all be zero.

Here are some links you may be interested in:

Once you have started the tank cycling test it every few days to see how its going. Your axolotl should not be in the tank while it cycles.
