You need to test your cycle by dosing ammonia up to around 3-4ppm (sometimes hard to tell with API test chart) and if within 24hrs. you have 0ppm of ammonia and 0ppm of nitrite then you are cycled. If you are not in that 24 hour window test in another x number of hours and so on. If you are not showing any signs of this dropping, then your tank is not cycled. I think the members name is Diana but if you are not cycled, then you should do a search for her posts. She has some good advice on cycling tanks.
