A water change will have no negative impact on your cycle and will help keep things moving and bring your levels low enough so you can actually tell what they are. You can also add another pinch of ground up fish food just to make sure the bacteria has lots of nutrients and phosphates to grow. A water change will also restore the buffers in your water to prevent any fluctuations in pH at the end of your cycle. Remember your dechlorinator!
hmmm...maybe i read it wrong

I thought, again could just be the way i read it, that i had to wait until there was 0 ammo and 0 trites and then do a pwc. What i am reading now is that i could/should do a pwc now to get the number back in range? if so, this is no problem as i can do it today before football.

Not to put you off at all just my experience, ended up having to split my dwarf gourami and my ebr up due to constant chasing, moved the gourami to one of my other tanks and put a female mate in with my male ebr. The result?............. One happy gourami and around 70 ebr fry!
