Is my tank cycled?

Juvelee

Hey everyone,
I started a tank around 2 months ago. Its quite moderately planted and was infested with pond snails, I've also been doing with stability. On 13/9/20 my ammonia was at 4ppm, nitrites at 0 and nitrates at 0.
23/9/20 ammonia at 2.00ppm, nitrites and nitrates at 0.
2/10/20 ammonia at 1.00ppm, nitrites and nitrates 0.
11/10/20 ammonia 0, nitrites and nitrates also 0.
Is my tank cycled and my plants are consuming all nitrites and nitrates hence the 0 levels. Or is there a large chance that the plants are consuming the ammonia and there actually is no nitrates or nitrites present at all?
My other tanks which are not as heavily planted are cycling as expected showing nitrites and nitrates so I can rule out the test kit as being faulty. Other info: temp 29C, vol: 19L, stock: bladder and pond snails (hitch hikers), internal filter + biospiroa media, substrate: master soil.
Thanks for your help!

Yes.
Doubtful. It may be a weak cycle, but it's probably cycled. The plants will take all out of the water but probably not fast enough to completely prevent a cycle.
