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 place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top...

Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
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.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

You are probaby there, but like HB said -- it won't hurt to do a test day just to be sure. Nice work!130g: 7 Angelfish, 1 Bolivian, 12 Neon Tetras, 14 Serpae Tetras, 9 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora ? Ghost Shrimp
I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.
