So I have been doing a fish in cycle with almost daily water changes for the past 7 weeks (I know not ideal...was given the wrong information to start).
I have also been testing the water daily:
- About a week ago the tests started showing no ammonia and some nitrite.
- Tonight I got the first blue nitrite test and pretty high nitrate.

Right now I think I have
0 ammonia
0 nitrite
40-80 nitrate

I'm including a picture as well.

I'm pretty sure my tap water has high nitrate (20 or so).

Am I cycled? Do I do a water change now? If so how much?


Thanks!

40-80 is starting to get toxic, so i would wait it out a bit longer. You probably will begin to see the other levels spike as the nitrate works its way down. Your almost there in my opinion.
