    Glad things are finally working out! Looks like your on the right track. It won't be long now, and you'll have a cycled tank :)

    Around 3 day 2. Woke up this morning and here are my results:

    Ammonia 0ppm
    Nitrite 0ppm
    Nitrate 40 ppm
    PH between 7.0-7.2

    Should I add ammonia one more time or do we say it's cycled?

    I would say you are cycled! If you are adding fish right away do a large water change and then add the fish. If not, you will want keep adding ammonia until you are ready to add fish.

    you will only need to add ammonia every other day at this point to keep the cycle, and no more than 2ppm
