whens my cycle over
hi i have a cycling 30 gallon the nitrites are at about 8.ppm
What's the ammonia? What test kit are you using? Are you sure nitrites is 8 ppm?
Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Ammonia is converted to nitrites which is converted to nitrates. So everything but the nitrates will drop, and you do water changes to remove nitrates. Doing a water change generally slows down the cycle process and isn't necessary if you don't have fish in the tank. You'll eventually want to do water changes to bring the nitrates down to a safe level, but gradually, not all of a sudden. Also, make sure there's always an ammonia source being added until the fish are put in the tank.
