Help with cycling

I think that I am on the right track here, just hoping to get some input. I have a 10 gallon tank, have been cycling for about 2 months now. For a long time could not get ammonia to come down. Finally have a reading of .25 ppm ammonia, 0ppm nitrites and 5.0ppm Nitrate. Have been doing about 3 gallon water changes every other day for the past 2 weeks.

Thanks,
Ashey

It sounds to me like your cycle is done. What i usually do in these situations is buy some type of cheap livestock (shrimp, snails) and add them to the tank. If they do fine for a few weeks and you dont see your perimeters go out of whack then you are done.
