20 - 30% water changes daily until that ammonia is .25 or below. Needs to be 0 once cycled.

I would do a large water change 40 - 50%

You need the ammonia and nitrite to read 0. Keep testing everyday and water changes to keep the levels of ammonia and nitrite at 0

Did a 30% water change today. The results before the water change are:

pH = 7.6
High Range pH = 7.4
Ammonia = 0.25
Nitrite = 5
Nitrate = 40
