If it's different to the tank reading, then you still have a little way to go.

I recently got a small shoal of peas as well, fascinating little fish.

Have you got your co2 yet? If not have a look for an out of date co2 fire extinguisher on facebook market place or ebay, I paid £100 for my first bottle of co2 which I got from a lfs but paid £12 for a fire extinguisher which does the job just as well.
Morning,

Yea I am using CO2 fire extinguishers at 20quid a pop from amazon, refurb but they are not quite full but will still last me a age. I will have to check out old ebay for any out of date local ones.

My Crypts are absolutley booming right now, but my vallis is struggling. Any ideas on nice background plants?

A pic below of my tank from setup to now... the added moss and anubias are fairly recent additions
