Did your tank cycle? Did your ammonia and nitrite rise before they dropped back down?

How long ago did you set up the tank? How did you cycle it? The answer to your question is, if you saw a rise and fall in ammonia and nitrite and then you saw high nitrates, then did a water change then you are ready for fish! If not, then no - you are not cycled and not ready for fish
