Okay. Starting a journal of the progress of my new tank and how long it takes to cycle. Basic info on my tank is: 29 gallon tank, 2 filters, fluval 206 canister filter and fluval aquaclear 70 hob power filter, artificial plants, glofish black gravel, hydor koralia circulation pump, and fluval vueTech 200 watt heater. I let a cup of tap water sit for over 24 hrs and these are my initial parameters: gh 161.1, kh 125.3, ph 7.4, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 0. All tests were done with api test kits. Not strips.

You're still cycling is all. Be patient. When you can dose 4ppm of ammonia (which you should be doing when you dose) and it is converted into nitrates in 24 hours, you're all done. Do this 2-3 times to be sure, do a water change to bring nitrates down and you're ready for fish!
