Sooo....maybe starting to come down?

Also, make sure you're keeping am eye on pH at this point. You'll be fine since you just did the pwc...but always have your eyes open for drops.

Your ammonia conversion is excellent though! Shouldn't be too much longer now.

The nitrites got lighter though. Is this a sign it is almost done?

Yep...keep feeding it ammo every 24 hours and keep a close eye on pH. If it drops...do a 50% pwc.

This is when it's most important to constantly be testing pH.
