A little more help with cycling please?
 
Last Friday, I began cycling My 20 gallon tank with Cull Guppys, These are the result from the tests today.
Nitrite 0.5
Ammonia 0.25

Is my tank cycling at the normal speed or faster than the norm?
It has been seeded with cycled water and decor.
I will be performing a water change today.

It takes 4-6 weeks to cycle a tank. There is no such thing as 'cycled water' as this bacteria is not free floating but attached to solid surfaces.
Stay on top of water changes, checking parameters and be patient.
