Definitely ammonia, nitrites and nitrates. Unless you bought an established tank, after only 1 month, the levels for those readings may be detrimental to the health of the livestock you have already.

Once the above readings are at acceptable levels, you may consider calcium, alkalinity and magnesium. I personally recommend Salifert for these, but there are kits available that are both less and more expensive.
