I just wanted to give an update on this cycle but I think it has stalled.

I've just tested both ammonia and nitrite and nitrite is showing 0ppm and I tested it twice. There has been a constant source of ammonia, and I've been extra cautious about this, making sure it doesn't run out. Is it possible that nitrites are at a high level but the test kit doesn't recognise this, or has the cycle stopped? Surely I should be getting some kind of nitrite reading?
