My Tank done with its cycle?
 
its been about 2 weeks since my saltwater nano has been running, All of the ammonia and nitrites are at 0ppm, and nitrate is 0-.5 Is my tank done cycling?

WOW, thats a fast cycle. Did yoiu use fully cured Live Rock? I'd give it another couple of days to be on the safe side. Then go ahead and add CUC, and a fish. then add slowly after another 2 weeks.

yea, i used fully cured live rock, and 30 pounds of live sand. also, everyday, i added a bit of already cycled water to it, just to kinda experiment... i guess it worked

Fully Cured Live Rock did it, the water doesn't carry enough bacteria to help anything go faster. But, I'd say your good.
