So if your ammonia has been a 0 for a day or more and you haven't dosed, you've slowed things down.
To restate: test every 24 hours (no more) and if ammonia has dropped to 0 after 24 hours and you still have nitrites, then do a 1/2 dose. Each day that ammonia is 0 and you still have nitrites, 1/2 dose again until you have both 0 ammonia and 0 nitrites. once you hit that sweet spot and you also have nitrates, you're cycled. Do a W/C and stock.
