So I been cycling for a week with stability and bottled ammonia. Dosing the first day to 5PPM, it took a few days to finally make a drop but two days ago my ammonia dropped. Nitrites was still pretty high so I continued dosing to 4PPM for ammonia. As of today I believe my nitrites are at 0 are close. What should I do next? water change or keep dosing ammonia? I haven't used stability in two days as well.

high levels of nitrates have been known to stall the conversion of ammonia (someone correct me if I'm wrong). I would say to do a small water change, test your levels, dose ammonia, and then test again to make sure conversion of ammonia is still happening.

Did a water change and redosed with ammonia. 12 hours later the ammonia is 0 but nitrite is around 4. Guess the cycle continues lol. Starting to run out of ammonia. Hopefully everything will be at 0 tomorrow.
