Ammonia being processed is a sign, How long did it take to hit zero?

About 4-5 days. I added some more water and some dechlorinator just now since with the temperature being high, the water is evaporating quickly and the water level had dropped significantly. I thought while I was busy I might as well do another nitrite test (i'm obsessed ) I accidentally added 6 drops of the nitrite soluation instead of 5 (it came gushing out) and after 5 minutes the test was the lightest shade of purple. It's usually crystal blue so I got very excited and quickly retested, this time adding only 5 drops. I didn't get the same purple colour although it seems to be a darker blue than I usually get.

Did the usual morning tests:
Ammonia: Inbetween 1ppm/0.50ppm (dropped from 2ppm over a period of 2 days)
Nitrite: 0.25ppm (First sign on nitrite, 2 days after 3rd dose of ammonia )
Nitrate: Still 0
Very excited that I now have nitrite, even if it's just a tiny bit. I would have expected to have more at the rate the ammonia is dropping, but oh well. Hope the nitrite/nitrate stage doesn't take as long, i've already been cycling for over a month.
