After appx 72 hours. PH- 7.6, ammonia- 2ppm, Nitrates 2-3ppm
normal water is at PH- 7.6, ammonia- 3-4 ppm, zero nitrates. If I leave it longer, will it change? Thought with all the fish crap in the bucket and all the extra oxygen, it would do something more then that. I did get a reading, but was expecting higher Nitrates.

As far as I am aware offline mineralisation is to make other nutrients available eg potassium etc. Most of the ammonia excreted by fish would go straight into the FT water. :)
