My bio cube has been running for 1 week and 4 days now. Friday I had a small ammonia spike 0.25ppm. Yesterday (Sunday) I tested it again and my ammonia was back to 0. Nitrate is 0 and Nitrite is 0. I will test again in a few hours but if they still read 0 is it time for my first water change?

What kits would you suggest?
APIs are fine.

Any kit can have a bad run, but honestly, I've used 15 different kits and while Salifert tends to be the best for a few parameters, IMHO, most any of them that are fresh & not outdated work just about the same.

Most LFS will actually test your water for you if you take in a sample - never hurts to get a 2nd opinion (or 3rd) when you are new to the hobby.

Good luck!
