11 days of running so far.. here's what I've got
 
Temperature: 78 F
pH: 8.0
Salinity: 1.026 SG
KH: 200 mq/l
Nitrate: 5 mg/l
Phosphate: 1.5 mg/l
Nitrite: 0.3 mg/l
Ammonia: 0.8 mg/l

I'm a little worried about the Phosphate and KH, they're both a little high. All tests done with Hagen test kits.

You're getting there, almost cycled. I'd say just another week or two and you'll be fine since you already have nitrAte readings. But don't let the ammonia get any higher, do a 25% water change.
