Yes, just hang in there, the spikes will drive you nuts but it worth the journey..

I remember those days when I asked for help on this forum with my ammonia and nitrite spikes. thanks for your help shellica.

Day 46 of my cycle: 0 Ammonia & Nitrite (10 days straight), consistent increase from 0-10, 10-20, and 20-40 Nitrate since. Just had a 50%WC 2nd time in the last 10 days, previous one was 2 days ago with 10% WC.

have 4 amano, 6 adult RCS, 4 baby RCS, 1 golden mystery snail in the 5g tanks plantd, filtered, with air stone.
