Yup, any day now you should see ammonia drop to 0. Takes nitrite about the same length of time to drop, sometimes a few days shorter.

When doing a fish in cycle, your concern should not be about delaying the completion of the cycle, but rather the health of the fish. Any time the ammonia gets over 0.25-0.5 ppm you should be doing a water change to drop it down. Yes that may make the cycle take a little longer to complete, but isn't the health of your fish worth it?

I would only be feeding a pinch of food a couple times a week until the cycle completes.

I would add a full large bottle of Tetra Safe Start to the 75. It's actually a good product but I have found overdosing is necessary. I add a whole small bottle to 10g tanks.

I think that's a good idea.
