What does it mean when a reaction is at equilibrium?

What I have is far is concentrations will not change, rates forward/back are equal, and rate constants are not. Is there anything else that I am missing? Is there no net change as well?

There's no net change in the concentration of reactants and products and the forward and reverse reactions are happening at the same rate

the rates of product changing to reactants and reactants changing to products are the same

Q=K, meaning that the forwards and back reaction rates are equal

However, make sure you remember that just because a reaction is at equilibrium, it doesn't necessarily mean that the reaction is over.
