As long as your doing a fishless cycle I wouldn't do a water change just yet. I would wait and run a few more tests to collect some data about what's going on in there. And if you're in no rush, it'll work itself out lol

Tough to say (its been a while since my tank cycled lol). Just continue your tests and it will either spike or drop off the charts. The biggest key to SW is patience, nothing happens quickly.

I would wait. A water change in a tank that's not cycled is just delaying the process. Best to wait till you're reading 0 ammonia 0 nitrite an then go ahead with a WC
