How did you clean it? What type of filter do you have? If you cleaned it out with tap water and cleaned all your media, you have killed off beneficial bacteria. The bacteria converts ammonia and nitrites into nitrate. While this bacteria builds up, it initiates what is called te nitrogen cycle. If you are unfamiliar with this, type in nitrogen cycle on google for a more detailed explanation. But it seems you have initiated a cycle.
