Am I at the end of my cycle
Today is day 16 and my measurements are:
Ammonia - 0 ppm
Nitrite - 0 ppm
Nitrate - 5.0 ppm
I started the cycle on May 31. Are these results close enough to add fish to my tank?

It does seem that your tank is cycled. I usually advise adding ammonia for a couple more days to be certain, but by looking at your numbers it isn't necessary, just advisable.When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

You are probaby there, but like HB said -- it won't hurt to do a test day just to be sure. Nice work!130g: 4 Angelfish, 2 Roseline Sharks, 12 Conga Tetras, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora
