So I just tested the water again. The ammonia is at 0ppm and the nitrite is at 0ppm and nitrate is at 5ppm. So if I have read everything right then the cycle is complete. I just find it strange that nitrite never was above 0 ppm, maybe I just missed it.

P.S. Thanks for the trust. I will do my best not to disappoint you. I just advise from my own experience and research into the reasons these things work. Have fun with it. B.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business.
