Hey, I just started my tank about 2 weeks ago and have been reading these forum's about cycling and all. The setup I have is a 47 gal tank with AC 70 filter and etc. I have good substrate and live plants. I have past the ammonia stage of the cycle and the nitrite is where I am having some issues. I have done at least a 25% water change once a week and cut back on the feeding. The readings I am getting from my test kit are PH 7.8, Ammonia .25, Nitrite (dark prple) Nitrate is between 20ppm and 40 ppm. How long and how can I get the nitrite levels in range and complete my cycle. I have 1 pleco and 5 cichlids and not planning to stock more until the cycle is complete.
