If I were you I would just let the tank sit until everything goes down to 0 then perform a water change. Let it sit for a few more days and monitor the ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and ph just to make sure nothing changes quickly again. If it doesn't do another water change and you could add a couple fish.
Thanks for advice! I didn't add anymore yesterday, I wanted to wait and see if nitrites and ammonia went down to 0. Ill check later after work. Posted via Mobile Device
