I wonder if someone could give me some advice please. I am a first time fish owner and am cycling my new aquarium before adding fish after advice I have found online. I am using ammonia drops and have been cycling now for just over 2 weeks.
The last few water tests have remained the same and I am not sure if I just need to wait now for the Nitrite levels to drop or if I should be doing something to help it along. I am no longer adding ammonia.
My readings for the last 3 water tests (over 3 consecutive days) have been as follows:
PH 7.5
NH3 0
NO2 8
NO3 80
KH 7

Neither Nitrite or Nitrate have changed - is that normal?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Thanks :)
