well i knew that but my nitrite just wouldnt lower so i took a risk and didnt change the water and the next day nitrites were at .25, then the day after that i was done cycling. Im just glad i had danios, any other fish would probably die

well so far my nitrite is at .25 and 0 ammonia and 5ppm nitrates so I am pretty close now. Hoping that I will be done tomorrow so I can get some fish next weekend.

Just remember to stock slowly, as otherwise the increased bioload could cause a mini-cycle which less hardy fish may not survive.

Good luck with it, and I hope the cycle completes for you soon :)

Me too. And I plan on adding them slowly 2-3 fish at a time with at least a week or two between additions, or however long it takes to get back to 0 and Ammonia and 0 Nitrites.
