Safe Nitrite levels cycling?
I began my fish-less cycle on Friday 1/4/13 I dosed to what I think was about 3ppm of ammonia in my 55 Gal tank. I say 3.0 because the color seemed to be between the 2.0 and 4.0 on the color chart of the APi master test kit I have. I tested it tonight and the ammonia levels are down to 0.5 so I tested the Nitrite levels and they seem to be at 5.0 or even higher, the test color looks more pink/red than even the 5.0 on the color chart. Is this something I should worry about? Or just leave it until it lowers back to 0 to complete the cycle?
Extra info I have heat to 80'f
and am running an Ehiem 2217 canister filter
