Oh, I first set up the tank to start cycling 5 weeks ago, hopefully I didn't jump the gun too much.

Your tank is only fully cycled when all Ammonia and Nitrite are gone from your tests.

How are you testing for Ammonia and nitrite?
That .025 ammonia boths me a bit.

I have an API Saltwater Master Test Kit, which is a liquid based color matching game that leaves a little room for error based on the back lighting and the angle you hold the test tubes at. I have been pretty careful to only take readings in full like when looking at the tubes straight on.

API is good. Just keep and eye on that ammonia and if it gets worst or you see your animals acting stressed do a PWC to bring it down.
