Are you putting in the same amount of ammonia every day? Or are you putting in however much it takes to get to some ppm?

Nitrites shouldn't spike a second time unless there is an increase in ammonia.

i am doing the add and wait method of adding ammonia till i get 4ppm (whick is 10mls from 1 ppm) and waiting for it to go back to 1 then add again till it drops back to 1 in 12 hours , and i havent had a nitrite spike yet so idk where that came from lol. today test showed 4ppm ammonia, .25 nitrite, 10ppm nitrtate.
