Thanks I went out and brought API stress + zyme. How long does it take a fish to gain back its full colour?

It depends on what is stressing the fish out. if it's just water quality then she will un-stress when the water goes back to being good quality. API Stress Coat is a fine water conditioner but it doesn't "de-stress" fish, it just adds Aloe Vera which is a little debated on whether or not it actually helps. If anything, it helps regrowth of fins not destressing. I know the names are super confusing. Stress Zyme is a bacterial supplement although not very good but you can still use it if you feel the need to ^_^

for the past 2 days the nitrite had spiked I have tested it this morning it was 0ppm, nitrates 10ppm, ammonia is 8ppm ( I have been adding ammonia lock and doing daily water changes) ph: 6.6 had my tank cycled?

I also have feeling my ammonia is off, it's turns into dark blue, when you first add the soultion it turns green but then it turns into dark blue.
