So my 29 gallon tank has been cycling since March and recently, about a week and a half ago the nitrates began showing up. I kept putting fish food in the tank and waiting for the ammonia to go away yesterday I added about 10 gal of water that had ammonia (From another tank that is my brother’s) the water had about 4 ppm and when it was transferred into my tank and was tested the ammonia was down to about 1.5ppm (I had expected this) This morning I was impatient and did a test no ammonia and more nitrates. It had been about 14 hours. Is my cycle complete?

I would say it's good, but I would still keep an eye on it.

Will do. I’m just glad it’s pretty much over. I’ve had months of nothing and now I’m almost there!
