What are you using for a ammonia source ?
I think if you were to read anything about the nitrogen cycle they are all very close ,
You want a fairly high spike in ammonia that will convert into nitrite then for that to spike and convert into nitrate .
When ammonia and nitrite are 0 ppm
you will have high nitrate ,
A few PWC
( partial water changes ) the cycle is now finished .
