so I have been doing research on SW for almost a year now. I have had lots of experience with FW and I am now making the transition. I currently have a 20G T with a biowheel filter(up to 40G), 20lbs LS, approx. 10lbs "dead rock", heater, reef-sun 50/50 by zoomed, power-head, hydrometer, thermometer, SW master test kit. On the side I have a few things I've been given- marine starter kit by kent marine (Ammonia Detox,Essential Elements,Pro Buffer DKH), caribsea calcium reactor media(although I dont use a reactor). My tank has been set up for a little over 2 weeks. My levels are: ammonia-2.0, NO3-0, NO2-0, ph-8.0. specific gravity- 1.022-1.024. I have not used any chemicals at all in this tank.

NOW for the questions:
1) Can the calcium reactor media be used as substrate?
2) Whats going on with my ammonia level when everything else is fine?
3) Can i add LR now?
4) Can i add a clean up crew now?
5) What are some things to look for?

Thats all for now, although I'm sure there will be more...
Thanks to all that reply:help:

I guess I should have explained my intentions with this tank. I plan on adding some corals, feather dusters, and a few fish. possibly a false percula, green or blue chromis, mandarin goby and a clean up crew.
