Just tested my water params and the results are in:

Ammonia: 0
Nitrites: 0!! (had to test twice because I didn't believe the first one)
Nitrates: 5 ppm
pH: 8.0

The nitrites were off the charts yesterday, then dropped to 0.5 ppm after I did a 95% water change. I was expecting them to be high again today, but they're at 0. I'm thinking this may mean my cycle is complete!

I'm dosing the ammonia back up to 4 ppm and will give it the 24 hour test to see if it's truly cycled. I'm so excited.
