25% not going to much at all. If your going to do a water change do 50% to make a noticeable difference. Test again now. If its still high your in for another water change.

If you get .25ppm or more of ammonia or nitrite (no2) then you need to change water. You need to change enough to bring it down to .25ppm or less. Do this every day until the tank is cycled (0 ammonia, nitrite and rising nitrate).

Hi mumma !
Let we say , if I stop to do water changes for 2 weeks or more , does the good bacteria stop to grow up ? And the cycling stop too?? Regardless if the fish dies or not ...

The cycle will continue and the bacteria will still grow. Ammonia and nitrite will keep rising higher and higher over the 2 weeks and could hurt the fish.

Good news )
My aquarium (180 Litre) is cycling well maybe it's in the final stage of the cycle or it's done ...
Now after I didn't performed any water change since 11 days ago , I tested the water , and the NO2 level is perfect accorded to the test system and NO3 is 25 now ...
What d u think?? Is the cycle accomplished??
Elie.
