My nitrites dropped to 0 yesterday. I did a 50% water change and dosed ammonia to 2ppm. By the next morning I had 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and about 10ppm Nitrate. My cycle took 36 days to get to this point (55 gal). Needless to say I'M READY FOR FISH!. I'll be getting Malawi cichlids, most likely a male-only show tank. Here's my dilemma: Today is Thursday, I am taking an out of town trip next week. I'll be gone from next Thursday morning until midday Monday. (4 nights). I really want to get some fish in there but is it not a good idea since I'll be away for a few days next week?
