new tank cylce question

As the ammonia is turned to nitrite is it common to have both in the tank at the same time? I've been cycling a 29 gal. with 32 lbs. of live rock for two weeks. Ammonia is reading .25 and nitrite is .5

yes, during your cycle you'll see all three at the same time (amonia, nitrite and nitrate) once the ammonia and nitrite have dropped to 0 you're cycle is done. You'll likely still have nitrates at that point and you can do a water change to lower the nitrates as they are the last to disappear (if ever)
