I think I'd do a 50% water change, and see if NH4 and NO2 hit 0 in the next 2 days. If NO3 gets too high it can stall the cycle.

You have about another day or so for your cycle
my tank finished in 9 days
I still had trates present did a 25% WC checked next day and everything is perfect
I am getting ready to order my CUC
for this tank I want scarlet's and electric blue hermits
the reason for this I found there just not as aggressive as the smaller hermits on the snails
also looking at nerites , turbos,nasserites snails and a few others

yes i'm following you tread
