Hello,
I am starting a beginner community fish tank. My aquarium is 27 gallons and I want to know if i I have completed the cycling process. I added water to my tank the end of April and added fish about a week later.
I am using 5 zebra danios because I did not know about fishes cycling until after I had added them to the tank. I frequently check my water with a test kit and do water changes about once a week. My tank is half planted.
Now, my levels read 0 ppm ammonia, 0 ppm nitrate and 10ppm nitrate (my tap water has 0 nitrate).
I think I need to add an algae eater soon, so let me know if there's anything I should do before that! Thanks!!

how many days the parameter stable?

5-6 I believe

Yep id say youre ready. I'd go with an ancistrus personally for that size tank. Ottos would also work well. Either way id say its time for a trip to the fish store!
