    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.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    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!
