Nitrites

My nitrites have gone up the past couple days and are extremely high! It's been cycling for about 2 weeks now and i never detected ANY ammonia! My ph is also super high. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong???

Hi Sarah,
Have you detected any nitrates?
Pls do more water changes to dilute the nitrites if you have fish in the tank.

If you are doing fishless cycling, leave it until you detect nitrates.
