I have an oase 600 cannister filter full of fluval fx bio media apart from the bottom tray which has filter floss on the top and medium sponge on the bottom. I am using absolute pearls to jump start the bacterial delivery how long should I leave it before putting in some fish. I'm using the seachem pH and ammonia cards inside the tank. The ph reads 7.4 and ammonia safe

Are you using ammonia to fishless cycle?

I’m not sure how the “pearls” work, but if you dose your tank to 2ppm ammonia and it is all processed to nitrate the next day, then you are ready for fish (usually in the neighborhood of 4-6 weeks).

You should definitely invest in the API master test kit to check your ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and pH levels.
