Maybe I'm hitting the end of the cycling phase?

The whole story is here: 5g (I know, I know) just starting. Feeding questions ...

Nitrites and Nitrates finally showing up. I'm hitting the 40 days from aquarium day 0.

Looks to me as 1ppm of nitrite and 5ppm of nitrate. I did 25% WC for the past 3 days in a row, ammonia is rising back to 1ppm to 2ppm daily.

Fish are eating. 3 days ago they were looking like they were losing colors, but they look good again. There's a lot of activity in the aquarium and they look happy.

I also reduced the feeding to once a day.

Should I change more of the water?

I would increase water changes to 50% in order to get the ammonia and nitrite down a bit. It looks like things are coming along nicely though.
