hmmm, by those numbers it looks like your tank is not yet fully cycled. it will not be cycled until you are showing zero's for both ammonia and nitrites. i would keep a very close eye on those ammonia and nitrites until it is finished cycling. you may need to continue those daily water changes for a while. however, i would avoid cleaning the filter or doing very many gravel vacs. i would not touch that filter at all for a while...let it get dirty. a clean filter is bad
these water parameter readings, did you take them before or after a water change? .25 is a low reading, but when it gets any higher than that you really ought to do a water change to get it lowered. i doubt you are very far off. how long has the tank been running?
