What I have been told is when your ammonia and nitrites go to zero add another ammonia source and if that goes back to zero then do a water change and ur ready for fish but I don't think nitrate has to go all the way too 0!!

How did you cycle the tank to begin with? If you want to test your cycle, I would use pure ammonia. Dose it up to 1 ppm and if it's completely converted to nitrate in 24 hours you should be good. Throwing another shrimp in there will produce another ammonia spike and take longer

Ok cool I just gotta find some but with the shrimp I was thinking just leave it in for a day test and if it's around 1-2 ppm take it out then count 24 hrs from then would that work??

So I had alittle floodage this morning when I woke up. I decided to turn the system off over night to see what would happen just in case and my sump flooded. Also if anybody could tell me what a stringy white type algae looking stuff is?

I think my cycle may be done. It's been 27 days to the exact time haha. About 6 days ago threw another shrimp in to see if it'd jump and go down and the ammonia went up no to much about 2 ppms then nitrites about 1 ppm now seem to be back down with just nitrates way up there.
