Cycling

Recently went tru my cycle, nitrites and nitrates are at 0ppm but ammonia is hovering around .25-0 ppm...did a 30%water change, added seachem stability, i will check again in half hour, wondering if mixing my saltwater in the bucket will have any affect on the ph when i add it to the tank?

I would not put any livestock in the tank until cycling is complete. And you don't need to dose anything. The tank will cycle and stabilize in 3-6 weeks. Add Marine Buffer. It buffers your pH to 8.3 but not any higher. Add this while it cycles and everything should be good and ready for fish when ammonia hits 0.
