fishless cycle is done.

After 5 weeks of carrying bucket all over and dumping water all day my tank has finally lost all its nitrites. Woohoo!!!!!!!!

Great job! I posted this on your other thread, but I'll put it here too just to ensure you see it-

I'd really recommend testing the bio-filter at least one more time before stocking. I'd advise to dose it up to 2ppm, and at this time tomorrow if it's at zero ammo and 0 no2...then we can be 100% certain you're good to go. I'm super nervous about stocking immediately after finishing because crazy things can happen at the last second just like you saw with your pH.

Congrats though

Being responsible...fishless cycling defines it, fish-in requires it. Choose wisely.
