Now why didn't I see this thread?
Oceane, thanks for the good question.
Joe, a small trace of nitrites will not mean your tank has completely cycled. By adding fish, you'll only be screwing up the cycle soon as ammonia will spike again once your fish die due to nitrites poisoning.
Now, you have to monitor your tank regularly for any spikes in ammonia and nitrites. Should you see those substances at detectable level, do water changes immediately to nullify those dangerous substances.
