What should I do next at this point in the fishless cycle?

    Hey everyone, I have been doing a fishless cycle with ammonia from pro aquatics. I'm confused about these readings and was wondering what I should do next? I upped the ammonia back to 4 ppm to keep the bacteria fed.

    Are you using the old "add ammonia every time it drops to zero" method, or the method written up on here? http://www.fishforums.net/threads/cycling-your-new-fresh-water-tank-read-this-first.421488/

    It would help if you could tell us how much ammonia you've added and when, and your ammonia and nitrite test readings. Just looking at one set of readings without knowing what has gone before won't give us any idea where you are in the cycle.

    Something like -
    Day 1 added ammonia to give x ppm
    Day 4 ammonia reading, nitrite reading

    etc etc
