This is solid advice. I would just like to add, have patience adding the fish after the cycling is complete. It takes a long time to build up a good bio filter and even though a tank is cycled, adding new fish will introduce new ammonia and subsequent nitrite spikes. With your ammonia still being at .75 ppm, you're near lethal levels for a lot of fish.
