A little advice please when you say cycled what are you refering to? I am brand new to the hobby and comfortable with my results at this point but am looking for as much knowledge as possible Thank you again its good to hear that someone likes something you have so much time and effort in

Hi when you have cycled your ammonia level should have gone to 0 the cycle is when you have enough good bacteria (bio load ) the ammonia turns to nitrite then to nitrate all these levels should be 0  your tank looks great and welcome to AA 
