Dose the ammonia back up to 4ppm and keep testing. I like to dose to 4ppm daily. I think a more consistent level of ammonia will help develop the BB needed faster. When the BB has built up to the proper level, your ammonia and nitrite will go to 0ppm in 24 hours. Then big water changes to get the nitrates down and you are ready!

No reason to dose again, it will only prolong the cycle. You need your nitrifying bacteria to ramp up and this will take a bit of time. You have plenty of food supplied (nitrite), dosing ammonia will not speed this up. Just wait.

Lol, something worth mentioning. Spoonman was all about killing them suckers :p jk

I thought it was a bad idea to cycle with inverts I in the tank. There more sensitive to toxin spikes then a hardy fish. Although ill never fish in cycle again.
