why did you start over? now you have to cycle all over again and from the looks of it your cycle has just begun.

Especially since you have no nitrites or nitrates, but .25 ammonia, Expect large spikes of ammonia, ad then shortly following large spikes of nitrites and nitrates (once ur bacteria establishes itself) -- Be prepared to do lots of water changes!!!!

What was the reason for starting over, if I may ask?

I cleaned and changed everything because all I was doing was killing fish...  After three weeks of killing fish I figured the bio wheel should be established..  Everything is good now...  I am testing the water every other day...  So far everything has stayed low... this is the second week no more dead fish...  water is clear... only thing going on now is blue guppy lost his tail....  Last night all readings were 0.
Let me know if I am doing wrong still!!!! ??? ???

you are doing wrong stop cleaning your tank let it cycle fish will die but that's natural if your using fish to cycle.... by changing everythign you are stressing your fish and constantly taking it back to stage 1 of the cycle... your ammonia will go up then your nitrites then ammonia will drop and nitrates will go up then nitrite will drop. it happens its natural and its not pretty... you can't avoid it just let it come.
